Anyone else immediately think of the Far Side cartoon "Tethercat"? Yeah, I didn't think of that either.

Is the mystery item used for cutting leather?

Nobody wanted to look for it?
It's a hand held stripper for cutting leather strips. It fits on your finger.

DrT guessed it too but I was looking for something specific that the leather was made into. In all fairness, I did not ask what the leather is used for after being cut so technically, DrT was the first to guess it.

Edit: BTW, it's called an Australian strander. And what I was looking for was whips (wa-peeesh)!
