    Default Is This Really A Fish Scaler ???

    See it here:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=330267764180

    I've seen at least two others of this tool on eBay,
    and for one of them somebody sent an e-mail to the
    seller saying it was a file for filing down horse's
    teeth.

    Can anyone here say definitively whether this is a
    fish scaler or a horse-tooth file? I tend toward
    the fish-scaler theory, because the working surface
    doesn't look much like a file.

    Could be, but I don't think so because of the likelihood of rust, especially
    around salt water.

    That's a good point, but cast iron is far more rust-resistant
    than steel. I've got a couple of metal lawn chairs which have
    sat outside probably for the last 60 years, and though they
    show visible rust, they aren't close to being rusted through
    in any places. I asked a friend of mine who is an expert on
    metalworking, and he looked at the chairs and said they were
    low-carbon steel which is very resistant to rust.

    Also, it could be a scaler for freshwater fish. Or marine fish
    that had been rinsed.

    Could be, for really big fish, but it also looks similar to a tool I've
    seen farriers use to file horse HOOVES not horse teeth!

    Yeah, my God, how big do people think horse's teeth are?

    A horse tooth file? It's way too coarse for that. A horse tooth file
    has a fine grain to it.

    A wood rasp is used to file horses back teeth.

    That's why one person holds the tongue (firmly) while the other files.
    I was the tongue holder.

    They don't all have that problem. Do all humans have an overbite?

    I only saw one horse with overgrown back teeth. When he was trying to chew
    grain, most of it was spilling back out because his mouth wouldn't close.
