No, it does not sharpen anything.
Appropriate guess, though!

Alix, I had already taken and uploaded this pic in anticipation, but it's an easy one (basically, at least I think so) and not a gadget. Unfortunately it has nothing to do with geography either, which is a subject I always hated .
If I ever win another one I will try to lean towards a different theme .

OK, here goes.......

Rats. OK, thanks though. Hopefully the theme will change soon so those folks with a different bent can join in too.


Oh, and it looks like a toothpick holder to me.

Does it make a pattern on something? Like pottery or pasta?

It does not hold toothpicks....

And after the last one, do you really think I would choose something that had anything to do with any kind of pattern? just joking.....

I had this object given to me. Supposedly it's old, but I don't know how old. And it served a very useful purpose, one that everyone will know.

pipe cleaner? muzzle cleaner? pill dispenser?

Does the piece on the end serve as a cap?

How long is it?

None of those Jeekinz.

The one end IS capped and it's about 5" long not counting the chain.

Is it hollow? Is it used to store something?
