Chalky paper tester
Philatelists use a tool like this to detect chalky paper. I have no idea how it works, though it clearly has some relation to silverpoint drawing. This is a short length of fine silver (99.9% pure silver) in a wooden handle.

Silver bottle opener
I wasn't sure whether to put this in 'Useful' or 'Oddities', but thought 'Useful' was more likely for searching. That said, opening a crown cork bottle with this would undoubtedly mark the silver. This is a full silver solid silver copy of a bottle opener much used in the 20th Century, less so in the 21st. The other side has ROSS'S in place of GINGER-ALE. It is nearly 9cm long and weighs over 35g (heavier than the original!).
