Culinary Conundrum 3/12

Rossa puts her third puzzle to you:

There will be 12 of these conundrums. Let’s see if anyone can get them all right.

The last one was a garlic peeler bought for me by my Dad who loves his gadgets. Unfortunately it stays in the drawer as I prefer to peel garlic the old fashioned way with a knife. Tried doing it in the microwave once which is fine for loosening the skin but part cooks the garlic.

So, what is this?

And what would you use it for?

    Pluck the eyebrows of a fish or to remove it’s skeleton.

    Assuming that the device has two points and not the three I can see, one of which I suspect is a shadow, I’d say they are pin boning tweezers, and they look to be much more comfortable to use than the pair I have, which I acquired from my employer when I worked as a fish curer.

    I think William is correct.
