Update: the mystery items is a steak branding iron, used when grilling for marking steaks Well done, Medium, or Rare, the fourth side had a John Deere buck logo. Craig Clayton had the answer right off, and wins a t-shirt from the NeatoShop! A lot of folks had fun with the M and W, which stands for a lot of things, but the funniest was from trishlovesdolphins.
That's The Dark Lord, Voldemort's old seal. Back when he was called "Morty" he would dip the hammer in wax to seal his correspondence. However, too many people mistook the M for a W and started calling him "Worty." This lead the the immediate torture and death of many, and thus "Voldemort" was born.
That's certainly worth a t-shirt! The answers to all the mystery items of the week are up now at the What Is It? blog. Congratulations to the winners, and thanks to everyone for playing along!
