The device doesn't seem to be bent or damaged. I would guess it was designed to be this shape. I was in the screened in porch of my house when I bought it. I have kept it for 5 years, hoping to figure out what it is. Contractors are redoing my porch this week so I was cleaning up and remembered it existed.

Somewhere between a pasta serving fork and a tire tool

Shit looks bent. I guess it's to pill parts off a specific machine or bike. Like a shaft or axle puller.

A diapason

This is the best realistic guess by far, the locking notch at the end of the gripped portion gives it away as some kind of removable kitchen vessel handle.

It looks like a specialty automotive tool, but a replica of the factory tool. There are weird things like that for brake caliper adjusters.

Kind of a wild guess, but kudos for an interesting thread topic.
>>
>>2413352

the handle looks like a dildo. and I think you should use it as one.
>>
Device is very light. I would guess 100% aluminum. For sure it is not a tuning fork or butt related. My first instinct was grill/fire pit lid hook but could never figure why it would make sense.
>>
OK I cracked my joke now I'll take a serious guess. Since you found it in your screened porch, I have two ideas. One, maybe it's some sort of screen-stretching tool to make the screen tight before fixing it in place. Two, maybe it's some sort of removable handle for a window or awning. Like those crank handles that RVs use to open the outside awning, or the handles greenhouses use to open the skylight vents.
>>
It's a tuning fork that's bent up and broken, it used to sound like the note A when you bang it against something
>>

this
i use a taiwan every day as part of my fine china collection
>>
>>2414145
Handle for a camping pot maybe? The handles usually fold or are removable to make it easier to put in a backpack
>>
>>2413478
>>2414168
these
it looks like the thing that came with my grill for moving/removing the hot iron. I assume it has some similar purpose for touching hot things
>>
>>2414166
I beg you pardon, taiwans are NOT a part of any china collection - they're an American-grown, American-made tool, and will be stores with the burgers accordingly.
>>
>>2413352
It is a gardening tool. I purchased one for just that purpose.
>>
>>2414614
This. Looks like an old hand weeder to me
