Found this odd wrench and cannot figure out what it would be used for.  Maybe you guys can help.

Someone got pissed off when it slipped and they busted their knuckles?

Comes under the heading of Owner Modified, Desperate division.   Or it could of gotten stuck and went through some machine.   Wonder if the owner knew he could have gotten a six inch Crescent?

Yikes, I don't want to see the hand that was holding the wrench when that happened!
You might say I have a tool collecting problem....

Handle was "heated" with a torch and bent over to use in a tiny space.

I personally would NOT do it, but I have seen this done many times in the past.

I suspect you are 100% correct and makes sense too.  They must have used it on a fairly large nut with lots of brute force, too.  Of course, they may have tighten 2,000 nuts with this wrench, too.

My first thought when I saw this wrench for sale, was somebody got back at a co-worker, dropped this in his tool box in place of his prized possession wrench that never got loaned to anyone.

Thanks for all of the kind comments,

This wasn't an accident, they just wanted the pocket clip to look natural!

It's for the interdimensional quantum nut on the 1953 Model 22/7 retroturboencabulator.  It can also be used on a Light Four.

I learned something.   I had always thought it was spelled retroturboincabulator.
