Teapot Riddle no.13 (fan made).
Direction.

Rules:

I have one word which has several (2 or more) meanings.
Each of the meanings is a teapot (first, second ...).
You try to figure out the word with my Hints.

  • First Hint:

    My first teapot ends, and my second will show.
    Of them, one extends, with the other narrow.

  • Second Hint:

    My first teapot tips without movements or spills.
    My second has tips using what mainly feels.

  • Third Hint:

    My first teapot's thin, maybe sharp at the head.
    My second might sin if the middle is lead.

  • Final Hint (to make it easy):

    My third teapot's placed between units and so,
    Specifically based on its own ratio.

Good luck and have fun!
Last teapot riddle. Big thanks to @Jannis for making them!

Ok I now think it is:

POINT

The first teapot being:

A sharp tip

And the second being:

What you do with your finger

My first teapot ends, and my second will show.

When something narrows to a point, it ends. But pointing with a finger shows where something is.

Of them, one extends, with the other narrow.

You extend your finger to point, whereas the point of something is the narrow end.

My first teapot tips without movements or spills. My second has tips using what mainly feels.

When something narrows to a point it has a tip. Your fingers, which point (and also feel), have tips.

My first teapot's thin, maybe sharp at the head. My second might sin if the middle is lead.

The point of something is a sharp end. And if you "point" with your middle finger is a little bit rude, and the meaning could be considered a "sin" by some.

My third teapot's placed between units and so, Specifically based on its own ratio.

A third definition of "point" is a relative measure of the size of a font.

    $\begingroup$ The meaning behind it would definitely be considered a "sin" (at least in some religions)! $\endgroup$ – eye_am_groot Sep 18 '18 at 12:36

    $\begingroup$ That is not the answer, but can pass an alternative! You are searching in the right area, and funnily enough, some of your explanations for your answer are the actual explanations for the intended answer. You are so close, but I might award you a $50$ rep bounty because of this beautiful answer :D $\endgroup$ – Feeds Sep 18 '18 at 12:38
  • $\begingroup$ @Greg e.g. (ROT13) anvyvat Puevfg ba gur pebff, but that is not the intended explanation (assuming that is what you are referring to) :P $\endgroup$ – Feeds Sep 18 '18 at 12:39

Are you a..

Slash?

My first teapot ends, and my second will show.
Of them, one extends, with the other narrow.

to slash out extends your arm, the character slash (/) is narrow

My first teapot tips without movements or spills.
My second has tips using what mainly feels.

/ is tipped but doesn't spill

My first teapot's thin, maybe sharp at the head.
My second might sin if the middle is lead.

/ is thin and sharp at the end

Final Hint:

My third teapot's placed between units and so,
Specifically based on its own ratio.
-----
Oh, the / is the third teapot.. (for example "km/h" - the slash stands between units and makes a ratio out of them) hm I guess I mixed them up anyway.. ups. So a third(second maybe?) teapot could be the famous guitarist Slash?

Additional notes:

this answer has too many unanswerable clues, but yet there are many where they hit the nail (hehe) in the head, so I had to post.

    $\begingroup$ @user477343 don't worry I was not actively waiting for a reply ;) There is a whole south park episode about that guitarist, it's super funny (S15E05). I think my answer fits the final hint way better than the correct answer. Not the rest though :/ $\endgroup$ – Kaspar Scherrer Sep 19 '18 at 6:39

    $\begingroup$ @user477343 I was just reading it. And no not very often, only since I frequent this stack and only on sudden inspirations. I want to have more of those though :) $\endgroup$ – Kaspar Scherrer Sep 19 '18 at 8:00

Partial

Is it just?:

Finger (based on Astralbee's answer and comments). Not sure about the first teapot, but the second would be the fingers on your hand.

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ No, that is not it. I understand where you are coming from though :) $\endgroup$ – Feeds Sep 18 '18 at 12:54

    $\begingroup$ I didn't think so, thought I'd try anyway :-) $\endgroup$ – eye_am_groot Sep 18 '18 at 12:54

I am going to guess, it is a

Line

Explanation:

not much to explain here, its a wild guess based on few lines
My first teapot ends
My first teapot tips without movements or spills
My first teapot's thin, maybe sharp at the head.
and My third teapot's placed between units and so

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ I appreciate your wild guess, but that is unfortunately not the answer :) $\endgroup$ – Feeds Sep 18 '18 at 21:16

I know this question is already answered but:
i have the solution :D
maybe not the right solution but the solution

Its a gnome:
means: dwarflike troll or epigram/aphorism
since google translator exist

First Hint:
My first teapot ends, and my second will show.
Of them, one extends, with the other narrow.

The gnomes life or height ends, and they are pretty small(narrow)
the aphorism shows a truth, extends our knowledge

Second Hint:
My first teapot tips without movements or spills.
My second has tips using what mainly feels.

I'd guess gnomes can't hold balance when standing still/frozen
Aphorismsn can have tips, which can be useful in life

Third Hint:
My first teapot's thin, maybe sharp at the head.
My second might sin if the middle is lead.

Gnomes are small and maybe they have stolen dwarfs hat so they have gotten sharp
If one of nazi leaders have written in an aphorism it could contain sins...

Final Hint (to make it easy):

My third teapot's placed between units and so,
Specifically based on its own ratio.
maybe a type of gnome can change forms (ratio height-width-lenght) to fit and hid everywhere... Maybe even in your open mouth xD

Have a funny day :D
