What Is It? game 183

It's once again time for our collaboration with the always amusing What Is It? Blog. Can you guess what the pictured item is? Can you make up something interesting?

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: Ladybuggs knew this was a knife designed to be used in a life raft. Here's the description from Rob at the What Is It? blog:
A US Navy life raft knife, part of the survival kit on a life raft, cork handle so it floats, holes make it lighter, rounded end so it won't puncture the raft, painted orange so it can be seen if lost overboard, also a lanyard to tie it to the raft

The Professor had the funniest answer -a hedgehog quill-scraper! Both winners will receive a t-shirt from the NeatoShop!

It's a tool used for tensioning something. Hence the S shape with the large hole fitting over an axis and the small to fit whatever needs to be stretched. The only prob I have with this assumption is the aforementioned cork handle and no curve symetrically on the steel handle, for easier grip.

WWII USN Navy Life Raft "Floating" Survival Knife

but ladybuggs had it long before...

@ Pat:

google's search by image is indeed a thread to this game, but it is also a race to be the first, and the race for the funniest answer will not be influcences by google...

Great Game and thanks to Neatorama...
