What is the plastic tool that came in my solder kit? Answered

Hey guys, i just bought a solder kit.  This one to be exact.  There is a little plastic tool that I cant figure out what it is supposed to be used for.  It has two tips, one pointed, and one that is "forked" .  Can somebody tell me what it is?  I've been looking at soldering videos and cant find what this tool is.

Thank!

That is for clearing solder drips and bridges from the board. If you have a solder bridge heat the solder then use the tool to break the connection.

I use the forked end to tighten up wire wrap or make clean after wrap bends.
And the half arc end is used in positioning wires in a tight spaces where my
fingers are too big and clumsy....
