This is a cutting tool made by Alto Mfg for sharpening bamboo or fiber needles. The device is patented Dec. 14, 1920.

These needles must be sharpened after each use, using this tool. One bamboo needle will be included.

It works well. I tested it by cutting a bamboo needle, then playing it on a Victrola. It played well.
