Cleaner, knife

Unknown Maker
The kife cleaner is made of wood and leather.
Two rectangles of wood are hinged together with a piece of leather tacked to the inside of each piece. One side has a handle shaped from it and a thin plywood cover over a hole through to the leather. The hole is possibly for a container to apply lubricant. Crudely made.
