How to get last word from a line ending with "/" in Unix

Hello All,

I have a scenario to read a file containing text like thisSmiliesay file name is Dummy.txt)
Code:
/home/abc/test1/ | file1
/home/abc/test2/ | file2

I used a variable to store the content from file like this (say for line1):
Code:
File=`head -1 Dummy.txt | cut -f1 -d "|"`
Dir=`head -1 Dummy.txt | cut -f2 -d "|"`

Now I am looking for a third variable which should fetch the last value between "/". For e.g:, I want the output like this:
test1
test2
I am unable to find a way to do this. Could you guys give any pointer?
