You know what to do with it, right?

The more that I look at it-it might have been made as a promotional item/giveaway-but no name anywhere on it and the "Balls" might have been used as a knife/scissors sharpener???    Cranky

No, Dustin, you are not alone.

Since those small alligators were used on small pipe and tubing, I'm guessing that is a tubing cutter.

I doubt very much if that is a tubing cutter. I would have to go with a knife sharpener from the looks of it.

My WAG was off the mark.
The tool is in my possession, and it is certainly a knife sharpener. I have tested it and it works well. Wonder what material the round discs are? Not carborundum or some such, they look and feel like steel.

Is this A kitchen tool! Is the alligator end big enough  for taking off screw lids? Any idea of vintage?
