Yay! It's time for this week's collaboration with What is it? Blog: can you guess what this strange spiky tool is for?
Place your guess in the comment section. Please post no URL (let others play). You're playing for fun and bragging rights only today, folks!
For more clues, check out What is it? blog. Oh, and Miss C, it's NOT an instrument of torture, mmkay? ;)Update 5/9/08 - the answer is: A combination carving fork and meat holder, similar to the one in patent number 2,496,062, which states:
One of the particular uses for the improved holder herein is its use to hold meats, fowl, and other foods from slipping or twisting or oscillating while being carved either at the table or in the kitchen or at the restaurant counter or elsewhere.
Congratulations to Sherman Warren who guessed right!
