Why? what exactly is the purpose of this item? I can honestly say that any champ that can effectively use this item is gimping itself by not getting something else.
It also seems every teemo/kayle/kog i get qued with buys this, proceeds to feed and cause a defeat.
The combo of attack speed/ap/cdr make little sense, a caster would benefit from the ap and cdr, but gain nothing from attack speed. Like-wise most ad carries would like the attack speed but gain little from ap/cdr.
Can anyone name a champ that can effectively use this item without gimping its dmg output or its teams chances of winning?

None, its a terrible item because it has no synergy with any champion in the game right now.

It gives good stats, its just wasted in most situations.

Janna or Alistar.

Because it doesn't REALLY matter what you build on those two champs.

You answered the question yourself. It benefits champions who have abilities that add AP scaling to their auto-attacks. In fact, it's almost tailor made for AP Kayle, as it also allows her to keep her ranged attack up indefinitely, due to the MASSIVE amounts of cooldown reduction it grants.

Kayle can use nashors tooth most effectively out of any champ, With kayle, ap/as/cdr all work very well, but you trade great flexibility for power in each of these. If this was a single player based game, kayle would be amazing, but since you can fill all those roles with more effective champs, kayle kinda pales in comparison.
