What is it? Answers LXXXIII

I've been photographing and collecting unusual objects for quite a few years and have just recently started posting them on this site as puzzles for others to figure out what they are. If you aren't interested in tools, there are plenty of other type objects that have also been posted.

For first time visitors, I recommend the August and September archives for a wide variety of some of my best pieces.
