    I picked this tool up after my late Father-in-law's estate auction sale, he had been an antique dealer for many years. There is not any writing on the tool at all. It is made of brass. I would like to know what the tool is called and what it was used for. I have shown it to several senior citizens and know one knows what it is.

    Thanks for any help you can provide,

    George

      we have a few of these show up. It's a Humane Poultry Killer; tho' can't say how 'humane' it actually may be in operation. And just how is one supposed to get that bird to say. "Ahhhhhh"
