This is an antique ivory handled awl-like tool, probably dating to the mid 19th century. It could be a sewing implement of some sorts, or possibly a sailor's tool for nets or sails. The ivory has a nice mellow patina, and it may be whale ivory. The point and band appear to be silver plate. The handle has age cracks, but it is solidly attached. It was well used and worn. It has no markings.
