Wow, that is weird! Looks like it is meant to gut something.

Hollow out a cucumber? or other vegie? Gut a fish without splitting the belly?

Looks fairly new, polished metal? Any makers mark on it somewhere?

Is it the size for a jar? Might it be to retrieve items like olives or cherries without piercing them? I think Dragnlaw might be more on the right path, but I am simply speculating!

Yeah I have no idea and it's driving me nuts. The only thing I can think of is perhaps it's a specialized tool for some other kitchen appliance that's long since gone

If I had found that in a drawer from my mother, it would have been because she found it in a thrift store and chuckled as she put it in the drawer because she would know we would have driven ourselves crazy trying to figure it out.

Does it have a hole in the tip? Looks perfect for fishing olives or capers out of jars.

It looks like a sleek modern version of an old-fashioned pigtail food flipper.
