Unidentified Kitchen Utensil
Can anyone identify this UKU? I thought it was a zester, but not so, apparently.

I too would have thought it was a zester

but perhaps it's a nutmeg grater or something equally abstruse? Prob not a grater on second thought - not grater-y enough.

I think it's a cutter of some kind, possible for edging pastry. One edge be flat, and the other be wavy.

Either that, or it's an instrument of torture.

Soon after I posted this I thought "I know! It's for making little rolls of butter!" I tried it and it sort of works, but the hole is too small for the butter to get through, so as a butter-roller it's half-arsed.

I like your thinking.
