Oh that is awesome, if I got one I'd carry it in an over the back holster I'd worry with the belt holster it would interfere with my ability to draw either my melon baler or the microplane grater at need.

If Peter Piper had a pickle picker how many pecks of pickles could Peter Piper pick?

And did he have a holster?

Peter Piper possibly could pick pecks and pecks of pickles and then pick pecks of pickled peppers too, could Peter Piper pick but only with a pickle picker.

Mine was my grandma's and is in silver so I keep it wrapped in plastic, out only for special occasions .

Now just where are these pecks of pickles and pickled peppers Peter Piper picked with his pickle picker?

I don't have a pickle picker.

Guess it's time to go shopping.

Gotta keep up with the Joneses.

People are picky about their pickle pickers.

The populace thought they could pick up a pickle picker for a pretty penny and pass it off as a prickly pear pruner to the hoi polloi and poletariats.

OK, I guess that's really lame, sounded good when I started off thou...

I, too, have a silver one. It's been in my family since I was a little girl and I'm not too far from 70. It was only used at special meals, such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. That's how it gets used now. All the grandchildren think it's the coolest thing.

It is always a toss up which is cooler...the pickle picker or the sugar cube grabber...choices, choices, choices.

oh oh.... guess what - CWS has delivered us a dilemma... so choices, choices, choices....

my ramblings:-
The shaft length of the original picture suggests pickle picker, as does the fact of the picture of the pickle and jar included with it. duh...
The wire grippers on the end are what were/are used for sugar cubes, but usually situated on a much shorter shaft as sugar bowls were not deep.

My pickle picker is actually not very long in the shaft, but has two prongs at the end for "spearing" the pickle, then a plunger for pushing the pickle off.

It was used at the table to facilitate getting the pickle from the serving dish to the dinner plate with one hand so as not to have to push the pickle off the fork with a finger (horrors) or a knife (gauche). It was not used as a kitchen tool to fish pickles out of the jar.

My sugar tongs are just that... tongs. and no, my coffee's not ready yet...
