Default Interesting new stake - anyone got one like it?

I saw this on eBay the other day and have to admit that Iíd never seen one like it and, as it was only £40 including postage, I knew I had to get it. The shape and profile of it makes me think itís for shaping reverse curves but I couldnít be sure. Has anyone else got one of these in their collection? If so, what shapes have you formed with it?

Have a feeling that Kerry made one years and years ago when he was spending a lot of time on his Roadster.

No - I passed on a few as I had other means, and I'm just not much of a "collector."
