Guess the Implement


We haven't played guess the implement for a while, so here's a fun one.

While it might be easy to speculate on the vanilla purpose of this little paddle, why is it coloured the way it is?

Leave a comment with your guesses as to what it is and what the colours represent, and I'll reveal the true use of this "stick with a difference" in a day or two.

Hi Hermione,
All I can think of is leather shoe horn. The different colors are throwing me though, one color for left, one for right? Silly, I know, but otherwise, I'm stumped.
Looks ouchy for sure!
Hugs,Elysia

Hermione, is it a skin file one end course and the other fine.
Or possibly and acid/alkaline tester.
Warm hugs,
Paul.

The blue side is for cold and the reddish side is for hot. I think it is used for stirring things.

Ti's one of those little spatula, spoony thingys to clean out jars...

Hello there!
Well, my first instinct coincided with Paul's idea - a litmus strip of sorts. Yet I can't shake the feeling that this might be some sort of old school pregnancy test! ;)
Thanks for the brain tease!

I also am thinking a cooking implement for doing a spatula whatnotty thing. And I like Scunge's idea of the hot and cold end.

Hmmmm.

Confused.

It isn't a double ended paint stirrer, that has already been used for two different colours of paint is it? Methinks, probably not.

PB&J. One end to scoop and spread the PB, the other end for the J.

My first thought was something for stirring/mixing too and one end being for hot and the other for cold.

A extra safe match?
The brown part and the middle burns, but the blue part doesn't, so you don't burn fingers?

Or a serving spoon

A nail file/buffer? One colour is for filing the nails, the other for buffing and polishing them?
Or, as has been already said, a tester of some sort?

Daisychain said...

Hmmm...just had a look to see if it could be bigger than it seems, and a canoe paddle, but no, it seems small...and on closer inspection, seems to be shaped at the blue end, confirming to me its something to do with nails....looks like the blue end could be some sort of cuticle pusher/shaper....
You are brilliant, Hermione... these competitions are great fun. xxxxxxx

Hi Hermione, I think this is one of your hardest so far.

I think it's some sort of file but not sure which.

Look forward to hearing what it is.
Love,
Ronnie
