Anyone have any idea what it's used for?

It looks like an ear notcher for farm animals.   Just a guess.

There is an Electro-Tek CO in new Zealand that makes ear markers.  Wonder ifit may be from them?

I believe it is a leather drive belt punch for making the slots to put the stud type fasteners in.  Remember the rule -- when in doubt, it is either a nutcracker or a leatherworking tool.

I'm going with the ear marker idea. If it were for leather, no reason for such a deep throat.

PS, I still like the "nutcracker / leather tool" default rule

Or a saw set.

I hesitate to say it, but it looks to be another "emasculator"   Most of the ear notchers appear to be a "simpler" tool (well, at least now).
