Wednesday's What's It?

What's It?



We found this in the kitchen drawer of my hubby's Great Aunt's house. It is stainless steel. The front edges are sharp. It could cut off a finger! This gadget is 6" in length.
... we are clueless. 
We have no idea! 
Do you?

  1. Not a clue. Were they farmers? Might have something to do with farming or animals...I'd hate to think!

  2. I have no clue. Hubby first guessed, castration tool, then guessed something for cutting the end off fresh corn ears.
    Look forward to finding out.

  3. We thought about castration and or something to lop off sheep's tails. Hadn't thought about dehorning. The handles are so short, though, the leverage wouldn't be that great. So, maybe the corn cutter idea is right.
    I hope more folks put in their two cents. We'd love to know what it is!

  6. Dehorner was my wild guess too. Can't wait to hear what it really is. Before I read that it has sharp edges, I thought maybe a garlic press.

  9. my first thought was "oh no,more talk about cutting horns off of goats... I didnt know there were so many goat owners out there, and a prolific mass of kids are being announced on blogs daily.

    Im pretty sure goats are going to take over the world one day...soon.

  10. Don't have any idea what this is either. I'll check with my friend who seems to know what the most odd items are. She and her family have been into antiques for ages.
