Maybe its a ratchet knife like what the rude bwoys used to carry in their waist.. <IMG SRC=" ... /happy.gif" ALT=":&#41;"> <BR> <BR>Actually, I think it's hand toy percussion insturments like the "hit scrape", it has another name but thats what I was taught to call it in gradeschool. Also maybe those hand-crank things..
