What is it? Game 118

Hooray! It's time for our weekly collaboration with the What Is It? Blog. Can you guess the purpose of this week's object?

Place your guess in the comment section. One guess per comment, please, though you can enter as many as you'd like. Don't put any URL or web links, mmkay? Doing so will forfeit your entry.

The first correct answer (posted before the answer is revealed at the What is it? Blog), as well as the funniest yet ultimately incorrect guess will win a free T-Shirt from the Neatorama Shop.

For more clues, check out the What is it? Blog. Good luck!

Update 12/5/09 - the answer is:A Mongolian Flint Fire Striker, it's made from very high carbon tool steel, and throws a good hot spark. There is a compartment inside for holding flint or tinder. Congratulations to Bruno Cabral who got it right first and to Muppetmaker for the funny but wrong guess of Wizard of Oz scarecrow's man purse.

It's a 'snatch-proof' purse - the would-be snatcher loses his fingers past the middle knuckle. The model pictured has the optional blood-resistant finish.

It's a scalp cleaner from the Victorian age, for removing the crud that builds up from wearing wigs too long. Because it has flowers on it means it was owned by a woman.

It's obviously an ipod touch and digital camera case. Even back then they needed a way to stop pickpockets (hence the blade). I can't believe this is even an issue! :)
