I have one of these. Maybe I never got the hang of using it properly but to me it feels like dragging nails across a chalkboard. It does produce a chimey effect as advertised but I don't really find it to be pleasing. And those metal tines are kind of sharp and make for brutal abuse to strings, especially on my Elixers that tend to fray.

except the tops of the Vs were at the same height, so the blades got longer and then shorter again.

It was advertised to make your 6-string guitar sound like a 12-string.

It didn't.
I believe that was called the "Strumrose". I had one and liked to fool around with it once in a while, but I found it very awkward to use.
