That cracked me up. I think I've at least found a good use for it! It definitely wasn't made by a blacksmith but I could try a toolmaker, thankyou for your suggestions I think I'll feel a little embarrassed if its not to do with cooking though...

It looks like cast aluminum, anything else would be too heavy to wield for long.

You've definitely got my curiosity piqued.

What is the size, and how heavy (roughly)?

Hmmmm? That's pretty small. Less than 1/4# and 5"? Maybe a leather working tool? They are used with a mallet to mark the leather?

I don't know, but I'm looking forward to finding out!

I was thinking more along the lines of carrying two tacos through a crowded cantina

Here are some slightly better photos? My latest idea was something to do with crushing/breaking up ingredients...

All the ideas so far are possible as my granma was very crafty, still can't identify a match!
