It's a cutlery cleaner.
Before the days of  stainless steel carbon steel knives needed abrasion cleaning.
I only know as Im an amature  knife maker (or was)  and found a referance to it about ten years ago.
Crazy detail and complexity just to descale a knife.

I do believe that is correct.

If memory serves I saw one in the Victoria & Albert Museum, part of Museum Row in London, being Science,  Natural History and the V&A.

Cheers

My guesses were queueing up and along the lines of coffee, gunpowder or tobacco grinder/dispenser

You can click the photo (in fact most of them that are uploaded to here) and it'll expand to full scale after loading delay.

That sort of at first glance looks like a statue of Kali :)

Need to get Smokey to get a thread going on knives, the man is an expert, especially on sharpening. Given AD makes them from scratch should have a deal in common :)

Really AD?
Cool ::X
I used to mostly make stock removal hunting knives that some how took me to repairing or refurbing kitchen knives. Mostly they were gifts that the client wanted to continue using. Something special like dads old knife etc.  I knocked most back telling them to buy a new chef knife.
But some truly were special and Id put a new fancy scale on with nickel rivets and clean up the blade.
I had a shipping container as a "foundry"   
I had a bunch of fun doing it. I also tried to have a hunting knife style.
I've sold or given all but one pig knife that I held onto made from 440c .
Aparently it's ileagal but so kept it.  Will get a pic
