Thudicum's nasal speculum
Used to examine external nose.
There's a specific technique to hold this instrument during examination of the patient. Its really simple but if you don't practice to hold it, you will forget it for sure.
Keep your ring finger beneath one arm of the speculum and index finger in between the two arms. Press the other arm with middle finger such that the two lower ends meet.
Here's the picture of the right way to hold it.-
