Old but cool tool

I had my next door neighbor give me some stuff and this is what I found in the pile of tools and I have never seen one before or anything like it..So I figured I would post up a pic to see what everyone thinks about this unique tool ..

Looks like a sliding adjustable wrench, uses the taper in the collar to stay tight.

Probably rounds bolts more efficently than any other tool.

Adjustable monkey wrench. Monkey wrenches had square shaped jaws

Tool was made in germany and by a company name SUL...
It also has teeth in the back edge I guess for more gripping power..

Those teeth probably help keep it from slipping open when applying torque to it...

It looks like an excellent tool to use if you want to round over a bolt head

Looks like it would work well as a small hammer.. following the first rule of tools, Everything is a Hammer except a screwdriver... that's a Chisel
