Its called a candle shaver. Its used to taper the end of a candle so it will fit into various sizes of candle holders.

Could it be a candle-sharpener?

Does it smell or feel at all waxy?

That's kind of like what I was thinking... a combo tool to snuff out candles and the cutter to trim them. ?

Probably should take it to an antiques store to have it looked at (I couldn't find anything related online).
