In Sweden we use those to remove grates from an open fire or large hot dishes from an oven :)

what's the 5th letter?

Is it a K or H or an N ? :blink:

The H before it is not the same.
The N after it is also not the same.
It looks like a K to me because of the curve to the leg on the bottom.

Could be a "fluffer" for use in fluffing up polishing wheels to remove the caked polish.
