Unusual Stringing Tools
Being a new stringer, there is lots to learn. But that is part of the fun.
It also gives license to try unusual things. Here is a tool that I use to cut strings. It is a pigeon-shaped plastic tool with a razor blade in the jaws. It's cheap and disposable when the blade finally dulls.
Quiz: Can anyone guess what it is really designed for?
Are there other unusual specimens out there in experienced stringer's toolkits?

1) Nut Cracker to crack your nut.
2) Wire cutter for cutting your hair?
3) Who knows... I want the answer!!!

Looks similar to an emergency seatbelt cutter for me

I won't give the answer yet. There is a chance that visor, Cheung or people in that field may have seen such a thing.
But how about you venerable stringers, Sir Mark and Lord Silentheart? Have you not also used some peculiar tools in your time?

GrandMaster Fidget, do you use this tool in the surgery room?

You're close, Pete. It's a cutter for umbilical cord clamps.
They use these ungainly plastic clamps on the umbilical cord of newborns. The nurse uses the disposable cutter to remove it after the blood vessels have shriveled up and before baby goes home. Seems like such a waste to use such a cute tool for one use. At least on my stringing machine I can make it last as long as the blade stays sharp.

hm.... do you bring that tool home, new or used?
i had guessed that it was a tool for the umbilical cord since u mentioned Cheung, but decided no so since it look too small for it.
