Don't know what it is, but I've never seen a wedge with a small, round head. They are usually rectangular so you have more surface area to aim for.

How about some sort of counterweight, like a window counterweight or even a plumb bob?

Are the flukes all the same? Do the pairs of opposing flukes have the same length as the other pair and do they appear to all come to a point together?

Interesting looking piece. I know the splitting wedges you are thinking of.

This picture is listed as a fence post top on ebay. The round end is meant to be driven into the end of an iron pipe

You nailed it! Very nice. Thank you. After electrolysis I found that it had a temporary thin metal cap.. and itís hollow, and machined inside for a smooth fit to the pipe...
