Everybody was close, but J. Mercer hit it directly. Over to you J.

The last few have gone very quickly. Have we actually exhausted the inventory of obscure kitchen tools?

Thanking you...


Ok uppin’ the ante… we know it is an ax but:

* what did it got with
* what were its many functions
* what did it celebrate

I'd guess it was used to break open beer barrels and smash booze bottles. It was probably made to commemorate either the passage of the 18th amendment or something Carrie Nation did in 1901.

That takes care of part of the "what did it celebrate". There are two parts.

You could say that it could break barrels & bottles but that is not what is in the discription I have.

Well, if what I already said didn't cover it, I'm stuck.

I suppose I could try to research it, but I'm too tired.

In its simplest form I'll say you got it but... I will leave it up to you for how tough you want to make it. There is more of which I found interesting.

Close enough Bill take it away.

It is called a "Oven Claw".

The Oven Claw was invented by a former high-tech president, Bill Leikam. He invented this new kitchen gadget in December of 2008, after watching his niece pull a hot oven rack with a wooden gizmo. He improved the design and out came the Oven Claw.


Funny claim. I have seen "Push me pull you" that were made by the quakers in the 1500's

The axe end, was for shaping the hard wood pieces for controlled burning in the oven, the blunt side for knocking loose debris and carbon in the stove and the handle end for opening and closing the oven doors and repositioning the burner plates.

It was made in commemoration of prohibition, and the reverse probably has an advertisement on it. It could also be hung for art.

Possibly, it came with a stove.
