What Is It? game 168

It is once again time for our collaboration with the always amusing What Is It? Blog. Do you know what this thing is? Can you give us a wild guess?

Place your guess in the comment section below. One guess per comment, please, though you can enter as many as you'd like. Post no URLs or weblinks, as doing so will forfeit your entry. Two winners: the first correct guess and the funniest (albeit ultimately wrong) guess will win T-shirt from the NeatoShop.

Please write your T-shirt selection alongside your guess. If you don't include a selection, you forfeit the prize, okay? May we suggest the Science T-Shirt, Funny T-Shirt and Artist-Designed T-Shirts?

Be sure to check out the What Is It? Blog. Let your imagination run wild, and good luck!

Update: Abbey had the correct answer in the very first comment -this is a hand-forged key. Scroll down the answer page to find out more. Galen gets the award for the funniest answer: Chuck Norris' mustache comb! Both will get t-shirts from the NeatoShop.

This is a 19th Century British toothbrush and was particularly useful for removing barnacles and trapped weasels. Soft polishing bristles were of course avoided completely in order to maintain that famous "British Smile."

It is the Connach Anc Brannect, 'The Key to Happiness.' In old scottish legend the hero Divver McMuff forged the key from an entire mountain of ore, only to have it stolen by the Skaever king, Broelebogan, who through it in a lake. Forty years of war followed for no known reason, but a horrible curse was laid upon the finder of said key. You may keep the keep but I would like (if I win):

Before the invention of the waffle Iron, King Henry was bored with pancakes because the syrup always ran off and since plates with curved up edges didn't exist, this was always messy. He commissioned the kingdom's blacksmith to make a tool ( this one) to create dimples in the pancake and also make consistant rows thus allowing the syrup to not run off.
