Can you identify this tool?

Fell out of the back of a drawer from an item of old family furniture. Sorry for the poor pictures.

My best guess is some sort of scribe. I have one that's similar that I use to score and snap acrylic sheets...

Handle looks like it might be catalin (sp?) plastic. If so, you have a collectable because of the handle..

I'd bet on this. You could heat up the tip and scribe a line on leather.

Guys - I'm pretty sure that looks just like a toenail cleaning tool I had in a manicure set as a young boy.

Look in the pic about 4 or 5 and 7 or 8 items down.

A "leather creasing iron" but the one in the OP has a plastic handle which means you couldn't heat the tip so I agree, most likely a cuticle tool.
