It appears to be a tool for embossing a design on materials. Possibly pastry?

Looks like it's built for squeezing and pulling something through. Is it used to seperate fibers from some plant?

It is an embossing tool used to prevent alteration of Personal Checks. After writting the amount on the check and signing it the writer would use this tool by embossing the area over the dollar amount and over his signature to prevent an alteration by some would be forger. The tool is small enough to carry in ones shirt pocket. Desk models are also available.

I think darenN had a good idea to use it as a knurling tool :mrgreen: knurl the forend of pencils for a sure grip :D My teeth worked pretty good at making my pencils non-slip :roll:
