What is this Artifact?

African Finger PianoThis object is proof that sometimes we get it wrong.

This object arrived as part of a donation with many shipbuilding tools.  The donor was told that all the items were from local ship yards.  Our curators and researchers identified all the items except one, pictured here.

The best information we could get for that one object was that it was some kind of string cutter.   Having no other information, we identified it as such.  However we could not figure how this object worked to cut string.
