Mystery tool - MT Woodworker - 07-21-2021

Hey, anyone have a thought on to the use of this tool
Blade is about 6 1/2 inches long, wood handle.
Blade is wicked sharp.
Was my grandfather’s, so probably from the 1920’s to 1930’s or so.

Thanks

Might be a leather knife.

I think TimberWolf is right..Leather knife??

Hi
Very well could be, most definitely sharp enough to cut leather.

Or, a linoleum knife...

Did a little looking around, I think it’s an antique bread knife / slicer.
Found a lot of pictures with the same profile.
