Thank you sir! Makes sense about the serrations as they don't appear to be all that effective for cutting. They are so deep, they are unlike any other serrations on a blade I've ever seen.Yeah, it's a tack puller. No other function that I know of--the side serrations are just to pull tacks from another direction and with a different angle of leverage.
I have several and used then extensively over the years. But I don't use them much anymore. I like a slightly dull diagonal wire cutter instead--better leverage, easier to control, etc..
We were talking about tacks here sometime ago and I observed that for a tack to really hold it has to be driven flush...and a little more--it has to 'bottom out'.... sometimes it is hard to get the end of a tack puller under a flush tack. And if you slip with that tool, it can tear up leather or your hand, knee, thigh, whatever, pretty good.
Appreciate the help as always. Happy holidays!
