    Flea market find, wall hanger. Wondering what it is? About 6 inches long, all brass/bronze except for the steel cutting edge.

      Perhaps a sugar nipper.

      My neighbor and I were scrounging in a scrap yard today and he found the exact same pair as these. I agree with Slackjacks comment on these being sugar nippers or cutters. Very cool!

      Great! Now just what are sugar nippers, or cutters, and just how do they play a role in the scheme of things as I have no idea?
    4. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 7 years ago
      These were used to cut cones of sugar into manageable pieces.

      Nice work RobH! I always love to see an answer backed up by a photo ref., or patent
      info as you did.

      RobH, this is incredible! A bit creepy but incredible! How did you find this?
    9. RobH, 7 years ago
      A friend of mine has the same tool and I had seen it several years ago.
