What the hell is this?

I'm assuming it has to do with logging...

Looks like a basic budget scythe, where did you find it?

It looks like a bill hook. An old tree pruning tool.

No that is a tool for brush clearing called a bill hook. They have been used for several thousand years as both a tool and a weapon.--Ray

Pruning hook.

My Grandfather had one of those, I know they used them for logging but I'll be damned if I know exactly what their purpose was.
I'm thinking it's for cutting the limbs off instead of an axe after the tree is down.

Bill hook.

My Take said...

Used to clear brush, like a machete.

It's a brush axe, used for clearing brush and small small saplings when clearing land without mechanical aid.

You can still buy them at a decent garden shop, or like at Tractor Supply.

Brush Hook, Bill Hook, Pruning Hook.

Still a great way to open up body armor. (Medieval body armor that is)
