About this artifact

With thoughts of home in their minds, sailors often carved scrimshaw for loved ones and relatives. One of the most popular items they created were pastry wheels, also known as jagging wheels. They were decorative tools that were used to cut and shape pastry dough. This pie crimper was brought back from an Arctic whaling voyage.
