    The scale makes all the difference, though - the opening is nearly 2", so there's no way it could be used on a bottle cap. I was also thinking there were some torture-instrument-style things used with nutmeg, but again the opening is too large.

    My wife might know; she dreamt of being at the CIA and is a cooking show addict.

    I am NOT showing that to her. She'll think it's real at first, and then want to watch it for the History.

    Ugh. If SD hadn't dropped something like that, I'd be happy to see him.

    J/K, I'm happy to see him.

    Recursive J/K loop.

    I think it's a coconut grater. You use the spines to bust the shell and then shave the skin off with the "blade". Not sure, but that's kind of what it looks like.

    So like, for those who want REALLY fresh coconut shavings?

    Still not getting the inward-facing blade bit, but I probably didn't understand the angle correctly. The nut's surface would be round, so maybe it's angle would bite just enough to get the brown skin off?

    It pops out of the brown skin from the inside and you carve in on the outside curve.
