I would guess that it is a specialized bit for cutting a shallow groove, but not with a plunge router. Either that, or the arming pin from a thermonuclear device.

It's a little different than most straight bits, but my guess is it's a straight cut bit for making dadoes or any type of shallow groove. Most straight bits have the cutters elevated above the center to help clear chips. Your bit just seems to be elevated more. Nothing shows in the photos, but are there any markings on it?

Mortising router bit.
Thanks, no markings on it and I don't even know when, where or why I have it. I think Roger must have gotten it correct on his second guess....

Rob Damon is correct. It is indeed a mortising bit and darned efficient one, too.

Power is not taken. It is given. Who have you given yours to? Hmmmm?
Its a whatchamacallit.
