What's this????

Found this today at a Sally Anne thrift store. I figured it out eventually with help of an etching that was on one side of the blade. It may be an easy one for you but it is a cool little tool none the less...

Some kind of wedger? Like a melon baller only for making fancy canteloupe bowls?

I'd have to guess it's for removing citrus sections.

You could be right about the fruit knife but looking at this, I would think otherwise.

Ok I'll bite..........what would this tool have to do with a chicken???? Unless it is a specialty tool for a backbone I am in the cheese knife camp.

Something to do with deviled eggs???

Funny, though, I've seen this tool before but I can't remember when or where.

Busted! You are correct sir. Actually, you are all right. It is a speciality knife for carving fruit and drizzling sauce on food....15 dollar retail. I paid .25 cents....

Whew! I was thinking the chicken is NOT going to like THIS.

Oh, there it is.

Not a marketing success, I presume.

It's a V-shaped cutter - A sharp stainless steel blade and ergonomic handle help you perfectly carve hard fruits and veggies, such as melons and squash, into uniform fluted sections. Dishwasher-safe. (copied from the Pampered Chef catalog.)

That's what I was thinking. With that picture of the chicken - a tool for prying eggs out from under the chicken?

Chickens require motivation. In my hen house, I have a portrait of Col Sanders on the wall:
