    I believe that's a small brush hook.

    Those and the rectangular hoe's to the right of them are gardening tools. The "hockey sticks" are a type of sickle and the larger hoes are very common all over the world where people farm/garden by hand. I have a narrow one called an asada, and a wider one called an Italian grape hoe.

    I too appreciate the age of the sharpeners, but it makes me wonder: are young people not into whetstones any more?

    Probably similar to a small scythe, used to harvest root veggies or something like that?

    So many natural stones, omg... I think Mr. Sugai (our knife sharpener) has the one in the red box somewhere in his toy box.
