What Is It? Game 139

W00t! It's time for this week's collaboration with the always-awesome What Is It? Blog. Can you guess what this strange (and pointy!) object above is for?

Two winners this week: the first correct guess and the funniest but ultimately wrong guess win. Pick your own prize from the NeatoShop's large selection of neat Kitchen Stuff.

Contest rules are simple: place your guess in the comment section. One guess per comment, please, though you can enter as many as you'd like. IMPORTANT: Please write your prize selection alongside your guesses so head on over to the NeatoShop and take a look around, mmkay? Please post no URL or web links - doing so will invalidate your entry. If you don't make a prize selection, then you forfeit the prize. You have until the answer is revealed at the What Is It? Blog.

For more clues, check out the What Is It? Blog. Good luck!

Update 5/23/10 - the answer: A can opener, it could likewise be used to close the openings by placing the points in the holes when putting the can in the refrigerator, patent number 1,037,541. Samantha got it right first, but forfeited her winning because she didn't enter her prize selection with the guess. Congrats to Melphistopheles for the "extreme stooging" guess! He won a set of M-Cups Russian Nesting Doll Measuring Cups.

That's the tool (I can't remember the name) used to poke out the eyes of enemies in battle. You'll see the spacing is just right. It was a barbaric tool of torture in medieval times. Much later it had a happy and peaceful job to poke out the eyes of apprentice piano tuners. Blind tuners are always better.
