Any help in use, name, etc would be appreciated!!
I"ll have to agree with "kj" Scott.
I immediately went to my old Antique Tools book and visually scanned through the pages. I found a couple similar tools on page 58 & 59 and snapped a couple pictures for you.
The "curvature" at the end of your tools appear to be a give-away to its function. The books author lists them: early to mid 1800 tools.
I do not know what else your tools could be used for. They are too large for my dentist.
The books first printing is dated 1979, but the accompanying listed prices are updated to my book edition of 1993.
I also added a current picture and price of the above mentioned book currently available through Amazon for $4.99. Being the tool and axe man that you are, this book would probably fit well within your interest.
It's always important to know what you don't know.
