    My first thought is that it is a pretty old corn shucker, looks similar to one I saw on antiques road show quiet a while ago.

    Changed my mind, I think it is a Corn Sheller..

    Is that used for corn whisky? I was shocked to learn the majority of vodka is actually made from rice, like saki. Corn whisky may be as rare as potato vodka.
