A friend of mine came up with a strange hand tool, and posted a pic of it on Facebook to see if anyone knew what it was. It's been 2 weeks, and nobody has a (serious) answer. So here it is. What the heck is it?

Good one Bruce! For the record, it took 14 minutes on TractorByNet to identify.

And that included the time taken looking up some references after identifying it.

Meat tenderizer for bacon strips maybe. Can't see that being of any use on a Texas Steak. :licking:

That was my thought too. I have seen something like that before, but don't recall it having anything to do with tenderizing meat. Oh well, it's certainly before my time.
