    I picked this up in an antique store that is closing. I have seen a few pictures of some like this, I assumed they are spoke wrenches. This is a pretty cool item you can see in the last pic there is a little nickle or chrome left. Thanks for any help with this.

    It is a 19th century spoke wrench.
