Leather slitting cutter
The long fence is an adjustable guide, the short knife under the

of other differences.
Thanks for the info, looks like it might have been a part of a
paperweight like the one in this photo:
I bought mine for a dollar at the antique mall.

#125 looks like a carrying handle of some sort. Slide the "L"

the load, and when lifted the load (of ?) is clinched between the
two projections. Looks like it'd work best in multiples for
carrying sheets of something.
I'm still researching this one, so I'll put this on my list of
possible answers. I'm heavily leaning towards it being a bookbinder's

It looks a lot like the peizo-electric trigger for a grill. If it
has resistance and then clicks and feels loose, that's probably

Yes, it's a piezo-electric sparker. I bought it for the following
science experiment: poke a hole in the lid of one of those black film
canisters, insert the wire leads, put in a couple drops of alcohol or
perfume, put on the lid and then push the button. You get a small
explosion that sends the canister flying about ten or twenty feet.
