The tang stamp is marked "Applued For"

I think it's a handle for a tool kit knife. Looking at the bolster opposite the blade do you see, in the blade well, a rod or shaft that goes from bolster to bolster? If so, that is to catch/hook other tools that were in the kit.

It probably says Pat Applied For. The knife is part of a multi tool set and would have been sold with a variety of implements that hook into the opposite side of the blade. A bunch of companies made a knife/multi tool that looked just like that. The pic below is a Napanoch that's around 110 years old.
