Does the one piece completely come out of the other piece, or does it have a stop?
Looks like some kind of device to unclog or open up something, but don't have any idea.
Hopefully someone else will recognize it for you.

There is a "stop" mechanism and I would think the diameter of the hole is too small for a cigar to fit into. This device has a pin that pushes through the center hole.
Elton, thank you for the photo. I think you are on the right path.

Research shows some cheroot cigar smokers and regular cigar smokers did not like to cut their cigars. They wanted to smoke as much as possible. It also helped keep the tobacco out of their mouths if the end of cigar was cut off.

They liked to perforate holes for side air intake.... so they could smoke the cigar. Maybe that accounts for the piercing rod.


LOL I have spent way to much time on trying to id that thing you found....:rage:

U.S. Patent Documents
826299 July 1906 Willis

Be it known that I, HENRY M. WILLIS, a citizen of the United States, residing in East Williston, Nassau county, and State of New York, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Cigar-Perforators, of which the following is a description.

This invention relates to the class of devices known as cigar-perforators, and particularly to a type of such devices which may be conveniently carried upon the person without bulging the pockets and without being in any manner an obstruction or burdensome.

Among the objects of this invention may be noted the following: to provide a simple device which can be carried in the pocket Without notice or bulging the same to provide a device of the character noted which will be simple in construction, perfect in operation, and effective; to provide a device of the character noted by which the tip end of a cigar may be perforated by forming therein a clean-cut hole from side to side by pushing the material of the cigar completely out, thus by forming the perforation or hole removing the substance of the cigar to provide a clear passage and without plugging or packing the device, as is common; to provide a cigar-perforator which requires little or no effort to operate the same and which in operation produces no pressure upon the cigar tending to crush or break the same, and to provide novel features of construction tending to the easy manipulation of the device, rendering it cheap to manufacture, and producing a perfectly operating and effective medium for the purposes stated.
