It is called a Streckenteiler.


The best I found was a german Amazon page:

Diese 12 \"10-Punkte-Teiler auch als ein 11-Punkte-Teiler aus Edelstahl aufgebaut sind.

So they call it 11-Punkte-Teiler, but the product description is written in poor German though I may be wrong.

Btw. If you want a german name to an image, just use the German Google site. Go to Images » Search by image and paste your image URL

    The product title and description are probably machine translations. The title says "Teiler Abstand 12 In der Rechtssache", which means "divider interval 12 in the legal matter". Obviously this is not what that tool is called.
