What Is It? game 177

It is once again time for our collaboration with the always amusing What Is It? Blog. Can you guess what the pictured item is? Do you know what it 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-Shirt, Funny T-Shirt and Artist-Designed T-Shirts?

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

Update: Timbering was the first with the correct answer: this is a grab maul or a rigging hammer. Jeffos won the award for the funniest answer: "It's a training device for that game where they make you put your forehead on a bat, spin around, and then try to run a straight line. The spike keeps it in place." Both win t-shirts from the NeatoShop!

This is an African "Thwak-Aak" It is a cosmetic tool used by the Mursi tribes; know for their exotic ear plates, to pierce the ear lobe. A Mursi woman lies down with her ear lobe stretched tightly over a wooden block by her "sisters", then the eldest woman in the village positions the tool over the ear lobe and hits it with a large hammer-like club producing a "Thwaking sound followed by the recipients loud "Aak!!" scream resulting in a two part sound giving the tool its name "Thwak-Aak"

It is the original dual purpose "car club".
It'll let you obtain entry to almost any vehicle, and in the right hands, protect your vehicle.

Mobile candle stick. The candle is positioned on the spike, and the black ornament prevents wax from directly hitting the hand of the person carrying the candle stick... Maybe there is some dual use as training device, self defense device, or burdon in case the candle stick is used for a pilgrimage/procession....

In case of self dual use as self defense weapon, this could have been the first wax operated "Mag Light"...
