Not a tool, but something metal that is pretty common.

I think Stef is as close as anyone will get, so I will hand the baton over...

The joke - 'Why did he call his dog blacksmith?'

'Because when he heard a noise outside he used to make a bolt for the door.'

all dried out, the layers have started separating... it's not all flat and juicy looking...

Not correct yet, not sure that it would be a good idea to give any clues except that one answer is pretty close. If i give anything away it will be far too easy, and as soon as you see it you will get it so to speak. I can say that the area viewed is a couple of centimeters across, and that it is rolled up, and that is what makes it difficult.

OK so if the picture is a couple of centimetres across that makes the pipe/cable about 3mm thick - your not an evil dentist and that is the pipe for the high pressure water drill?  :)

Working on Fud's thinking, its not a suction pipe of some sort ???
If youre an evil dentist as Fud suggests then the pipe they use for sucking the water out of your mouth ???
