What Is It? game 176

It is once again time for our collaboration with the always amusing What Is It? Blog. Do you know what this thing is?

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-Shirts, Funny T-Shirts and Artist-Designed T-Shirts?

There's more objects to guess posted at the What Is It? Blog. Take a deep breath, do your best, and good luck!

Update: Anirban was first with the correct answer (but didn't select a shirt): this is a betel nut cutter. The funniest answer came from Chad Huskey, who said: According to Futurama robots celebrate "Robanukah" So in that vein my assumption is this is a device used when 8 days after rolling off the assembly line male robots have their robo-bris. For that, he wins a t-shirt!

It's a betel nut slicer! My grandma used that implement to slice slivers of betel nut, which she would then wrap in leaves and chew it, not much different like how you would chew tobacco.
