Looking for an idea of what this was used for. It belonged to my great-grandfather.

Suger nipper
by: Richard O. Byrne

This is a hand forged sugar nipper when sugar was purchased in cone form wrapped in brown paper. Cones can still be purchased from re-inactor supply stores.

Frequently one finds these with two handles to grip like a pair of pliers...mostly in steel, but sometimes in silver.

SEEN IT BEFORE
by: ELAYNE

I'VE SEEN THIS BEFORE IN AN ANTIQUE BOOK. IT'S A SUGAR CUTTER FROM WHEN YOU GOT SUGAR IN BLOCK FORM.
