I think you mean a flare nut wrench. It's designed to loosen the nuts holding brake, fuel and other restricted nuts without rounding them. Very useful tool. It looks similar to a box (closed) end wrench with a small cut-out in front to slip past the offending line. Usually six point gripping surface. Works like a charm.

Hope that helps.

Take care
