Years ago I bought a mobile home in Florida that had previously belonged to some of what we refer to as snowbirds. They would buy places like this and then come down to spend the winters in Florida and then go home when it started to warm up. The place came fully furnished, right down to sheets and towels, dishes, a sewing machine, bicycles, you name it. At any rate there was this strange looking utensil in one of the kitchen drawers that I have never really been sure of what it was. I figured with all the knowledge around here someone would surely know. If not, the guesses might be interesting. I don't think it is a nutcracker or crab leg cracker, though I have used them for both in a pinch. They are shiny chrome though it is hard to tell in the pic because of reflection. Ideas?
