Seller: huffcollectablespage (168) 100%, Location: Elizabethtown, Kentucky, Ships to: US, Item: 171572045532 In the days before Tractors, Combines, Modern Corn Pickers, Grain Bins, and Dryers there were Horses Wagons and Hand Husking. Up until the 1940's many farmers hand harvested their corn for a couple of reasons, one the machinery leading up to that time really didn't do an efficient enough job for some farmers to warrant the investment into the machine and second to insure that the corn air dried properly in the crib. This Hand Husker is the device that a farmer would use to husk the ear before throwing it into the wagon. The way it works is that you strap it on the palm of your hand and tear the husk off of the ear while on the stock so you can snap it off easier and it leaves the ear open to the air so it can dry. This item is old and was used for utilitarian purposes and condition reflects this, the metal components have corrosion from age, one of the leather straps is damaged, leather is dried out from age. I'm not sure how old this particular one is, but I would guess that it was made and used prior to 1945. This is a great collector piece for anyone who likes old farm memoribila, tools, or could be used in rustic home decor design.
