What Is It? Game 110

W00t! It's time for this week's collaboration with the always awesome What is it? Blog. Can you tell us what this strange and menacing old timey batarang is used for?

Game rules are simple: place your guess in the comment section. Please post no URL or web links, let others play. No prize this week, so you're playing for bragging rights only.

For more clues, check out the What is it? Blog - good luck!

Update 9/25/09 - the answer is: The head of a boarding axe, used by pirates to cut the ropes of boarding hooks, bring down masts and rigging, and generally tear through anything that stood in the way of the loot, like doors, hatches or locks. They were also employed by the U.S. Navy, the teeth behind the cutting edge were used to drag away burning rigging and sails from the decks. Congratulations to jamesmccallum who got it right! (and I must say, I've truly enjoyed some of your guesses!)

This is a Kepler flangle. This tool is for unclasping jammed safety pins on baby diapers. They come in in pink and blue but black seems to be the most popular color, though o one knows why. Its not named after the inventor, who is unknown, but after Wilmont Kepler, who owns a collection of 1,874,999 of these, you seem to have the only one not in collection. Wilmont's people wil be visiting you soon, I suggest you cooperate.
