Gerrycooks, I have this rolling pin too. I got mine at a thrift store years ago. It was in brand new condition. I collect rolling pins and this caught my eye, well, they all do. I have so many. My understanding when asking people over the years, in stores where they sell rolling pins like in Solvang, it's used to dock/doc/dok/doche dough. Puncuture/perforate it in other words. For what reason you'd want this done, I have no idea. I just got it for the looks. It will serve no useful purpose for me except that I enjoy rolling pins.
