No potatoes or metals were harmed by this tool.
Not for horses.
Yes it is a hand tool but not for picking up bundles.

I can't seem to figure a knife pointing in and the spikes pointing out.
The knife is small so maybe to harvest flowers in a bunch?
I don't know about the spikes though.

Grant you are sooooo close. It is used on corn but not for stacking.
Sorry not for pin the tail on anything,
Not a vintage ear tag pliers for cattle. Good guess.
Not for flowers, however, it might work for that.

Check with a botanist, I think you will find that the part it works on is a "flower."

I see some tamales

Yes it is technically a flower but if you ask 100 people if it's a flower you will get 100 people look at you funny and think you are pretty corny. Put another way, would you give a lady a dozen of these flowers on valentines day or when you POP the question?

I would not describe it like that. As above or below it is technically the flower.
