Museum Piece for Breaking Stalks

Could you please inform me as to when the old devices for breaking hemp stalks went out of use. These were the ones with the hand lever that fractured the stalks. I recently bought one for a museum and we were wondering as to its possible age. Thank you very much. Philip P. Scott Hghtwrb@aol.com
