>How big is it?
My guess is the top knob has the same diameter as a quarter (coin)

A good idea to wash it after use - soap would be a good start.

Does not cut glass

It is a multiple blade rotary cutter. It is used to cut multiple lether laces at once. Craftmans call it affectionnatly "The Stripper". ;)

The scarificator, a series of twelve blades, was also in vogue during the 18th Century, This device was cocked and the trigger released spring-driven rotary blades which caused many shallow cuts. The scarificator seems more merciful than the other blood-letting instruments.

Coconutz,

You are right
You misspelled it, but I'll give it to you.
Correct misspelling is Scarificator

Congrats
How did you find it?
