What Is It ?


When I saw this at the local thrift I just had to have it. Never mind that I have no idea what it is, it just looks handy and I figured that the Internet would tell me all about it.



No luck with that, so I thought I'd give you all a shot at it. Does it look familiar to anyone?



If you know please tell, but if not, a wild guess would be fun.


Even better, a story to go along with it would be interesting too.


Let's see what everyone comes up with.
The Mr. thinks it has something to do with cake decorating, I don't know so much about that.

Have a good one! xo

Well it's obviously one of those...you know...thingumies for...doing stuff with.

How weird. I wonder if the umbrella mark is a clue? xx

Kami said...

It looks like an instrument of torture to me. Just a guess.

Do you think it is one of those things that create flowers out of your vegetables? like rose shaped carrots or something?

Well, it looks like what you have to attach to your arm after a crocodile bites your hand off.

I think I've seen a tool like that used to make chocolate curls/shavings.

pumpkin carver?

I think you roll it across a slab of butter and it makes a 'butter curl'. They used to put them on a dish in fancy restaurants. One curl was just the right amount to put on a bread roll. Of course, I could be totally wrong! x

That is a very odd looking thingy, looks like it could be a farrier tool but I believe the handle looks like it must be a kitchen utensil of some form, but other than that I have no idea, I’ll be interested to see if anyone knows what it is.

Farmchick said...

Is it used for chocolate curls, etc...?

Lindsay Jewell said...

I'm with Kami - it looks like a medieval torture tool!

Monica said...

I am always so frustrated when I can't the answer I am looking for in the web. Am going for a scraping tool. Maybe to de-seed gourds?

Katiebee said...

I vote with the chocolate and butter curls but prefer Andi's and Gardenofdasies' replies.

Oh my, I just pulled in to the Vancouver House and checked the blog...I am laughing at all of the great guesses, how fun is this! You all are such good sports!! xo

Carrie @ Cottage Cozy said...

That company makes kitchen gadgets, tools and knives. I believe it is a "butter curler" garnish tool!

B'ham said...

Really have no idea what it could be...
But with that said-

I'm pretty sure that I should have one exactly like it !!
