Why not try any and all of the above--and let us know what works??

It looks like the handle of a pair of pinking shears or heavy duty scissors.

But I love the Whim Wham theory! So funny.

That looks just like the red wrapping paper cutter I have (somewhere).

I bought mine from a school fund raiser one year from my youngest
daughter.

Take it to an old fashion hardware store. They might even have one in stock. Remember not the warehouse type of today, but the mom and pop type store, if they still have any in your area.

I believe it is a paper cutter. I have something similar I use to cut wrapping paper.

It looks like the plastic one I have. It's a paper cutter like Foxglove said.

After carefully looking at the picture, it is a tool for putting the spline (rubber fitting) around the edge of a window screen to hold it in the frame. Silly me!

P.S. grandpa always said everything was either "a turnip twaddler," or "a tomato bender!"! Lol!
