Help Me Identify This Mystery Kitchen Tool!

Good Questions

Q: I work at Sur La Table and found this old beat-up tool in our breakroom a few days ago. I asked around and nobody I work with recognizes it, and some people have worked there for upwards of 8 years.

I am pretty sure it is related to the kitchen since it was found in a kitchen store. Thanks!

Editor: Huh. This one has us rather stumped. We feel like we've seen it somewhere before, but... nope. Not coming to us. It almost looks like a rotary cheese grater, but missing a piece.

Readers, help us all out! What is this thing?
