A strainer is a cooking tool used to separate broth from solid matter such as vegetables or morsels of meat. Though a period artifact, we have no examples of its use in period armory; the long-handled form shown in the illustration is taken from the Luttrell Psalter, c.1340. The strainer has its handle to base by Society default. See also spoon.
Huon Damebrigge bears as a badge: In saltire a flesh hook and a strainer sable.
