    I give up.

    This was hanging on a local restaurant wall, but nobody there knew what it was. The item in question is about 4 1/2 to 5 feet long with a squeeze handle. Anybody here know?

    We thought maybe an apple picker, but the flat spoon bill didn't seem right for apples. I also thought maybe a pole to reach into an oven to slide a pan out. If you slid the flat part under the pan and squeezed the handle to close the gripper tooth........ just grasping for straws here.

    Yup I would have to agree that it was a bakers retrieval tool for getting something with pans out of a stone oven that is about 3 feet deep. You want a foot or two outside to keep yourself cool when using it
    If it isnt broken, dont repair it.
