What Is It? game 340

It's Thursday, so you know what it means, Neatoramanauts: it's time for the What Is It? Game, brought to you by the always amusing What Is It? Blog. What is the object in the picture above? Your guess can win you a free T-shirt of your choice from the NeatoShop. Here's how to play:

Place your guess in the comment section below. One guess per comment, but you can enter as many guesses as you'd like in separate comments.

You might know the correct answer, but if you want to win a t-shirt, you'll have to use your imagination, because we are going to select two winners who give us the funniest incorrect guesses. If you guess right, then good for ya - but you don't win anything, see? So, it's up to you, funny people: you have twice the chance of winning that T-shirt now.

Please write your T-shirt selection alongside your guess. If you don't include a selection, you forfeit the prize. We highly suggest you take a look at the NeatoShop's new selection of Funny T-shirts and Science T-Shirts.

Update: This is truly a mystery item, obviously a tool, but we still don’t know what it’s for. We had some good suggestions, though. A T-shirt from the NeatoShop goes to Edward for this answer:

It was left behind at Comic-Con by someone coplaying a mashup of Thor and Cupid (Thtupid?)

The name “Thtupid” clinched that one for him. Another shirt goes to Berhard, who went into detail about the tool’s alternative versions:

This is without doubt Thor's fisching hammer, "Troutnir" ... a very light version for nordic god trout fisching...

It throws like a hammer, hits like a harpoon and returns like a boomerang...

slightly less romantic than trout fisching in "A river runs through it" but way more effective..

Thor also has a "sharknir", a "tunir" and a "merlinir" for offshore-fisching...

The only reason it only has a limited success at market resides in that you have to be a nordic god to be able to properly operate this supreme fisching gear...

Congratulations to both! This just goes to show that you guys are pun factories when you have the slightest bit of inspiration. We’ll do it again next week, with another What Is It? game from the What Is It? blog and Neatorama.

It's a manually operated second hand! These were commonplace before advances in spring technology drove hundreds of second-hand men out of business. It would be years before the minutemen and their hourly brethren would feel the sting ...

This is my daddy's good old direction finder. He never read a map in his life and whenever he got lost he'd whip this trusty old direction finder out and stick it out the car door window and follow the direction the arrow pointed. Did it work? Well... let's just say that one time I was 3 months late starting school...

Instead of a bottle, carpenters use this when playing spin the bottle. After kissing the person the arrow points to, they pound the ground with the opposite end and yell "Nailed it!".

“You are here.”
A predecessor (ancient Scottish origin) to the modern GPS positioning and direction system. It was limited to locating only one place at a time.

This is Green Arrow/Arrow's new proto-type 'Hammer' arrow for scaling buildings -or- spaces between buildings (with rope!)

Ever had your mouse freeze up and the cursor refuse to move? Whack that little arrow on the screen a couple of times with this baby and set your cursor free!

It looks like a panelbeater's tool for reshaping crumpled car body-panel corners from the inside.
It has a flat pein on the other side for flattening any ridges or bumps caused in the reshaping operation.
