    Hey guys, a friend sent me this picture asking if I knew what it was. He said he has had it for a long time and never knew what it was for.

    Overall Length is 8", both are fixed blades...thats all I know about it.

    Any ideas?

    It looks like a very angry melon baller.

    My grandparents sold something like that in their sporting good store. I think the part with the teeth removed fish scales. and the blade was kind of like a gut hook.
    I could be totally wrong though.

    They operated the store from the early 50's to mid 70's.

    Close. Here's the sheep nutter, which has the two-way crushing area. It's called the Jeffers Emasculator.

    ETA: I think this is my favorite tool, though. Gotta get me one of those.

    I've been looking at that Jeffers Emasculator for a few minutes now, and I'm not quite sure what goes where when you're using it. Is the little curved part a blade?
