Does anyone know what this tool is or how it is used for stained glass?  I got it with a lot of glass and tools I bought and I have no idea what it is or how to use it.  I cannot find it on the Internet at all.  It was made in Germany.  I attached 3 pictures of it.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

It looks annoyingly familiar, but.... I hope some one here knows!

At any rate, after four decades in the trade & craft, I do know that I don't have one!

I wonder if I need one?

I thought it was some kind of a crimper for lead, but I tried that and broke the glass.  So I am clueless.  I also noticed it was made in Japan and not Germany.

I have never seen it before.   Maybe it is not related to stained glass?

 

Boris collects tools of all kinds, ask him!

I thought Boris would be first to respond!  Where is he?  Like everyone else, I am clueless.

I have a photo of a similar tool I am trying to upload....but can't figure out how to?

 

We have a tool very similar that is used for cutting a rounded corner with one swift crunch and then it is sanded smooth. I think this is something similar...

Could it be to cut lead came along the heart? For example when you need to remove the heart to make a very sharp point.

I do not know, but I'll give it a try with some lead and see what happens.  I'll let you know what happens.

Could it be a hot glass tool? With the "cutting" edge turned to the side it looks like it could be a crimper/gather/cutter for hot glass.

A thought - Could it be a glasier's tool for commercial glass rather than stained glass?
