Many early tractors had that type in their tool box, when I was a kid I drove a 1950 model JD and it had several wrenches like that in the tool box.

I have several like that. They were sold in the days before ratchets became available, and continued to be sold afterwards too. Some of the ones I have are marked Herbrand, others K-D, some unmarked.

That looks like a Blackhawk tool. If you clean it real good with a wire brush, you may see a name somewhere. But other companies also made a similar wrench Here is a link to a interesting read about Blackhawk tools. They were a major tool supplier during the T era ... scroll down and this tool is shown...

The tool could also be a Waldren Worcester tool. A lot of the early tools look alike...

Here is the Waldren Worcester companion link shown in the Blackhawk link that I posted above. Waldren has basically the same wrench. It is listed as Model T head bolt and several other bolts. They show it in an ad in the link. It is about the 4th photo in the Waldren story. It was to small a pic to copy and get any quality. Both companies were major suppliers of aftermarket tools for the Model Ts.
