A hand held tool or device, see if you can guess what it is.

Nail Puller is the correct answer.
Here are some photos that shows how it works:
A hammer is used to pound onto the part that looks like a hammer head. Pounding forces the jaws of the tool into the wood to a level that will allow the jaws to close under the head of the nail. Squeezing the handle closes the jaws onto the nail and allows for removal.
I'll have to research that real quick like and get back quickly. Thanks for the heads up!!!Pure Mahem wrote:Zelph I'm pretty sure that lost in space had this one that's a farrier's tool Black smiths use it to reshoe horses.
Zelph I am also having a hard time finding any pics to support this but feel deeply that this is what the tool is. Perhaps you could email the photo to the gentle man at this sight as I am sure he could validate the tool, he is definately qualified to do so as a third party expert. http://www.horseshoeingmuseum.com
