For my birthday this year one of my relatives gave me what i'm positive is a Pfeil carving tool, marked with 3/35. I don't know what to do with it; i don't carve anything. Is it useful in other ways? Should i exchange it for something else i know i can use? I can do this guilt and consequence free, by the way.

What you have there is a #3 sweep, 35 mm wide carving gouge. I use one like it all the time when I'm building windsor chairs. It takes off the tops of the legs, and trims up the spindles where they poke through the bow.
