Unknown Item

Can anyone out there help us to identify this tool. It came in with a knife, with this one being identified as a "Fleshing Knife". However it is unlike any fleshing knife on the net, whereas the other one is similar to some.

Is it some sort of hook used in skinning an animal?

Or has it some other use?

It is 17cm long, and comes from Sheffield in England. but then, what steel item didn't?

I'm thinking wing wang for a goose's bridle, but don't quote me on that.
