Recently, we were cleaning out my grandparents house and found a couple of tools in the kitchen that were odd. One is this narrow metal tube with a star pattern of holes on the end. The cap on the other end has the same pattern. It is 1 inch in diameter and 6-5/8 inches long.
My first thought was that it was a shaker for some sort of baking ingredient, but the puzzling part is that the holes are on both ends, which doesn't seem very practical. Does anyone know what this would have been used for?
