What is this tool used for?

I received an interesting-looking tool as a present, but I don't know what I can use it for. I attached a photo. Does anyone know what I can do with it?

    To beat bread dough.

      Just a whisk if you ask me.

        I think it's an artisan bread "whisk" to be used when combining ingredients for sourdough bread. I have no idea how useful they are but it seems like the design might discourage sticking.
