Anyone know what this is? It's about 16 inches long; a stake maybe, but for what?

That's what I thought Strum. I think it's actually a billhook.

Dunno Ger, I had a look at them but what's the spike for? Could it be an old tent or marquee peg? dontknow It's a dangerous looking thing anyway. :D

A bill hook is like a sickle but with the blade shaped like a shallow "s". They are usually mounded on long wooden handles for overhead forest clearance. Significantly, it is so shaped that the part that recieves the wooden handle is not "spiked" but rather "piped" so the handle is fitted inside the metal.

The picture looks like a Victorian gardeners netting peg.
