The length is 27". The metal part is 3 and 3/4". It was found at a WWII coastal fortification, so I'm thinking its intended use is pulling something you don't want or have to to put hands on. The metal is some kind of rust resisting steel alloy.

I remember seeing a Funny British turn of the century 3" naval/coastal gun shell casing, ( at an antiques fair) with a "cascabel" ( Knob with neck) on the base...not your normal "Flat base and Primer" set up.
Could the tool be a "Hand extractor-ejector" to prevent burning hands on hot shell case???: Gun did not have much success, due to the strange design of its shell casing...and relegated to British Coastal defence in WW I ( and Probably dragged out for WW II..shell I saw was Pre-WW I, and reload marks on it as well.

(Any other suggestions?)
