Contest with stamp prizes! Name this object.

Post by Robustian »

.
Now as the days are getting darker I thought a fun little contest would be appropriate.

I will continue and post a new object after the latter has been revealed and we’ll see when I run out.

Name the object, or what use?

For what purpose it was made?

or the location where it’s supposed to be used at. It will vary from time to time.

The first question will be at the end of this post.

What’s the price you ask yourself?

It will be a different prize every time and it will be presented with the object.

To claim the prize just email me your address to: robustian[at]hotmail dot com and it will be in the mail no later than the next day.

And of course I will use stamps from the latest release when I send.

Time to play!
Just tell me what this is.

And the winner gets:
This Swedish block from 1969

I was gonna say lighter, but that's been said. So I'm guessing a tobacco cutter/grinder ?

Not an ashtray
Not a dispenser
Not a snuffer

I’m a non-smoker but I’ve been around smokers for long enough. I can’t think of anything else related. It can’t be for rolling your own (I’ve done that!).
Maybe we’ve lost something in translation.

I did check translate and Wikipedia before I posted to see that it’s exists outside Sweden
and what it’s called is not the same as another product.

Don’t think its the most usual now as it was before but it’s still sold in at least 115 countries.
