It's called a bung hole auger. It drills a tapered hole in barrels for inserting a bung (plug).

Yes, it is missing the wooden handle that would make it look like a T-handle auger.

Cork Reamer

Looks to me as tho it is a barel hole borer / reamer. Would bore the hole and cut the tapered, to fit cork, hole in one operation.
