What is it

Hi,
I've been on this Forum before with an old e-mail and had to log on as a new member, haven't been on in a while but at a garage sale I bought a mini lathe and chucks and in the box was this, it is about 10" long and appears to be sharp and tapered on one side of each of the flutes, anyone seen one before and can shed some light on what it is,

Gus

Pretty bad picture, but looks like part of an SKS bayonet...

Tapered metal reamer, can be used for enlarging holes in sheet type metals. Definitely not something you'd want to to do on on your lathe.
We used 'em in mills to make tapered holes in steel for tapered locking pins.

Thanks Guys,
The reamer sounds logical, as for Heamorried remover, i'd rather have the condition than the cure!
Picture is bad, its cyrindrical not flat so i'm not so sure about the Bayonate ir my spelling.
Thanks for the replies.
Can anyone tell me is Woodturners Catalogue still trading, cant seem to load anything into my basket online, are there any other sites where i can buy miniture birds for turned birdhouses?
Thanks in advance
