yeah, but it is only beveled one side, and it has that cup at the top where it looks like it has been hammered on. It looks like it is a specialized kind of chisel, and I was wondering if anyone knew.

Looks like an old wood handled wood chisel. The button on the top would have been the striking point for a mallet. Wood chisels are commonly only beveled on one side.

Right, Wood chisels are made that way. But its a cup, not a button. looks like a french horn mouthpiece. Maybe it had a wood handle in the cup? That makes some sense, but the metal of a chisel usually extends through the handle. But its so thick? Maybe a morticing chisel?

The old wood chisel is called a socket chisel, it had a hollow end like that, the handle had a wood pin that went inside of the opening, and the shoulder of the wood fit against the beveled end. It spread the force of the mallet hitting the handle and kept the wood handle from splitting as quickly. Most people would just bang the steel when the handle broke, so that is why it is battered.

Indeed, I have a bunch of them. I am guilty of molesting the end of one of them before I knew what it was.

Terribly abused socket (narrow mortise) chisel. I've thrown better into the scrap bin.

Aw, but if it is "good" steel, it is well worth refurbishing... It will outlast two or three new chisels.
