The alligator end is only 7/8" wide at the widest, and the whole tool is only 4 1/2" long.
No markings at all, and no idea of vintage. The rivets don't look like anything old, and and are steel, as are the "rollers", that don't roll.

I think it's escaped being a kitchen tool, but it is still a strange combinatio! Good thing we like trying to solve mysterys.

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

I think it is a kitchen tool, or a bar-tender's tool.  I have a similar piece (without the knife sharpener)
marked Early Times Whisky that looks like the alligator end is for cutting the foil around the cork
to open the bottle.  The other end on mine is a bottle opener.
