So, as i mentioned, I've been helping clean up my grandparents' house in my spare time. And since they can't take a lot of this stuff with them, I've "inherited" a bunch of things my mom has decided i desperately need. A lot of this was canned goods. That's fine, they can't store it at their little apartment, and everyone claims I'm the most creative cook in the family (lies!) Anyway, I'm trying to figure out what i'm going to do with some of the odd food stuffs, when i find a bag full of what appear to be kitchen implements or various ages. I say kitchen implements because they're very clean, and mostly kitchen tool sized. I don't use a lot of gadgets for things. When i was working in a restaurant, we basically used just can openers and standard cheapy chef knives. Anyway, I've identified most of these gadgets, but I can't figure one out.

The lower part is a big thick handle (over an inch in diameter at the widest--more than 3cm diameter for you metrics), and the tool part looks like a cheese planar, but the blade angle is such that I don't think it would work (it would constantly dig deeper). The inside edge is sharp like a cheese planar, so there's that, but the outside looks like the gears on a bicycle gear. They're bevelled, but not so sharp you could cut yourself.

What purpose do the gear point--sawblade--scraping bits serve? Why does it seem to be basically a cheese planar, but then not have anything to set on the top of the cheese to keep it straight? I don't have a picture, but there's also an even more mysterious plastic thing on the other end of the handle. it's like a hook so you can hang it, but there's no hole in it. It has two plugs that connect, but the only thing I could see putting in there might be string or something. Anyway, clearly this is not an emergency, but I am baffled, and I can't control my curiosity. Someone explain this thing to me! On a side note. While I was examining it closely, I thought to myself, what if society collapses and this somehow makes it. What would a future society make of such a device? If I don't even know what it is, what could they make of it?
