Intriguing Items That Perplex Observers with Their Form and Function

A landlord randomly found a long, twisted, heavy metal in his basement that looked nothing like an item that brought good use. It was described as a “scary wand” by the Reddit user looking to know what the thing was.

Answer: It was amazing that one commenter knew what it was — a soldering iron. According to the person, the end usually had a wooden handle, while the body was often copper.
