I'm not a :)

Question

Roaming eyes will float about

Finger doomed to poke them out

Button nose that touches heart

Let them never fall apart

Gaping mouth with toothless bite

Swallow not the soul I smite

Best if sinner lets me lay

Righteous lord will lead the way

Though I had actually been thinking of the acolyte-type ones used in churches to both light & snuff candles. Not really "everyday" enough for your riddles usually, but does fit rather well in that specific context.

Anyhow.

a pair of

pinking shears but rather their more mundane sibling

My original thought some time ago was a button-down shirt, though it's a rough fit for a few lines at best. I thought about sneakers and had a bit more luck, but still can't fit it all. I am still trying, though.

I like how shoes fit a lot of the clues like, well, a shoe. Not what I have in mind though.

the last couplet is probably one of the more specific clues. and it really does smite.

Not an electrical outlet as its eyes don't float around too much; a finger that pokes it out would surely be doomed but not what I was going for with that clue. Nor a mouse, as it doesn't generally do enough smiting for this riddle.

A nice guess, plainglazed, but not what I'm after. She lacks a tiny nose needed to keep it together. I'm still thinking that once this is solved it will be fairly obvious that it's the answer, as long as the righteous and sinner clues are interpreted correctly.

I can see how a soap bubble wand could fit most of the clues. But still without a button nose in the middle of the face to keep things together, and I've got much more of a bite from my toothless mouth.

a cigar cutter

I'm at a bit of a loss as to how to respond to this one without it being a major clue. But whether this is within the realm of acceptability or not has a great deal to do with the specific nature of the device you have in mind.
