Shoe-making knife

I got this knife as part of a junk lot at an antique store. I removed the handle and cleaned it up. I knew it was a shoe making knife, but on cleaning it, I found the maker name RICH ABR HERCER SOLINGER on it. (An old German knife making company, still trading)
After cleaning I stitched two pieces of leather together and pushed onto the tapered handle. Good for another couple of years of service.
