This week's collaboration with What is it? blog is the photo above of this strange tool. Can you guess what it is?
For more guess the objects game, check out What is It? - no prize this week (still waiting to hear from my shirt screenprinters), so you're playing for bragging rights.
Update 1/11/07: It's a fire tong used to pick up hot coals. Closest guest is #1 withvous, who guessed a fireplace set. Congrats!
