This rare style iron and chip breaker cap were a short lived experiment with Stanley. Stanley did this to address the issue of removing the iron for honing.You could slide the single iron out the bottom of the mouth if I remember correctly. The issue became trying to line up the iron and iron cap when trying to reassemble.
