That looks like the sort of dressing tool that requires a precision traversing holder to shape a fine grinding wheel in a surface grinder or CNC machine. A posher version of the diamond dressing tool on the Tormek. Not a hand-held device at all IMHO.

I use this type (because I had them to hand), as Jarviser said they are normally used on a surface grinder or similar held in a fixed (magnetic) clamp and the wheel traversed across them.

I have mine fitted in a wooden holder that runs against a guide set parallel to the face of the wheel on the grinding jig.

Grinding jigs that have a guide slot in their face Example here are an ideal platform for this adaptation.
