Mysterious utensil

Hello everyone!

Have any of you come across something like this? I'm trying to figure out what its intended use is :P.
If it helps, it's aproximately 5.3 inches (135 mm.) long.

Cheers!

It is a citrus zester. Do a Google search (images) for citrus zester and you'll see what you have.

...and the single bigger hole in the middle of the blade is used to make curls of the peel for garnish or for adding to soups, etc.

If you look at the OXO Good Grips Lemon Zester, the blade portion looks very similar.
