Jerome van der Meulen found this tool in a second hand shop in South Africa. It looks  a bit like like a horse‚Äôs hoof pick, but not quite.  Jerome would welcome our help in  identifying this.

Looking at the picture, I wonder how close the ridged semi-circles get to the bent ends if they are swung round? If they get quite close, they might be meant to grip something so it can be pulled tight. Depending on the distance, I'm thinking that the something could be fencing wire, rope or leather strapping. Could you provide some more photos with the parts swivelled around?
