Katherine Ens of Entwistle, Alta., says, “My mother recently moved into a retirement home and, while cleaning out her kitchen, I found this item that originally belonged to my grandmother. It’s 10 inches by 4 inches, with rounded steel teeth. The handle is on a slight angle and appears to be made of something similar to ivory. What could it be?”

What do you think, readers? Can you help Katherine solve this mystery?
