    What tool is this?

    So my dad and uncle play a game every year on there birthday. They send each other a tool that will stump them but the rule is you need to know what is first. So my dad found this tool and we cant figure out what it is before he mails it off. Here is some pics.

    Can you show other pics? Looks like some kind of wrench, but it's hard to tell for sure

    It's hard to tell from the pics provided but does the top jaw "recess" into the lower jaw when closed or do they meet flush? Judging by the build quality in I am guessing stainless steel almost makes me wonder if its not medical related.

    It is chromed and the handles thread on. they are brass that is chrome plated also. It looks like a shear of some sort and it does recess in when closed. I will see for better pics.

    It is an alien back scratcher/antenna cleaner!
    If there is a way to shoot myself in the foot, I would most likely miss anyway.

    Post this in the General Archery Discussion section - lots more traffic. Just ask if it's an "archery tool" and the mods won't give you a hard time for posting off-topic...

    I have no idea. From the shiny finish I'm thinking surgical or food preparation. Looks like you can get a lot of pressure on whatever you're crushing or crimping in those jaws. Or if the bottom of that part that moves down is sharp, looks like it could be some sort of pruning tool.

    It does look like Tim has found them. But that website is for surgical tools, not garden tools...

    Here's another site: http://www.medword.com/surgical/spi.html

    Looks like these are "Stille's plaster shears" for cutting off casts, I imagine.

    You're right Stash. I should've looked further.
