What Is It? game 158

It's time for our giveaway collaboration with the always amusing What Is It? Blog! Can you guess what this object is? Or maybe you know and don't have to guess!

Place your guess in the comment section below. One guess per comment, please, though you can enter as many as you'd like. Post no URLs or weblinks, as doing so will forfeit your entry. Two winners: the first correct guess and the funniest (albeit ultimately wrong) guess will win T-shirt from the NeatoShop.

Please write your T-shirt selection alongside your guess. If you don't include a selection, you forfeit the prize, okay? May we suggest the Science T-Shirt, Funny T-Shirt and Artist-Designed T-Shirts?

For more clues, check out the What Is It? Blog. Have fun!

Update: Just a guess had the right answer pretty quickly: this object is a fire starter. Soak it in kerosene, then place the business end under the logs and light. The funniest answer came from pismonque, who said, "It's a 2-in-1 Ant Annihilator Toy. The ring at one end originally held a magnifier for frying individual ants, while the other end was used to steamroll dozens at a time. Kids loved 'em!" Both win t-shirts from the NeatoShop!

Its obviously for holding heat, large mass of metal and thin handle.
Someone else said bedwarmer, interesting but I don't think that's what it is, although possible.
It appears to be some sort of clothes iron, or something used to place warmth onto something, while still being able to control it with the handle.
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
