    The pliers in the first image appear to be gripping thick animal skin. The jaws of the pliers are parallel at about 1" of separation.

    The second image also appear to be used for gripping skin. They are parallel at about 1/4", and then can be rotated ~360 degrees for about 1/2" separation.

    The snips have a permanent guard/depth gauge.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

      You're very welcome, glad to help.
      Can you tell me what the markings are on the snips?
    4. quincy7386, 6 years ago
      My brother has them. I will find out and get back to you.

      On one side it says:
      WISS
      USA
      C-3

      on the other is less clear and I think is says:
      PATO C.KYLE
      NOV.20.06.

      There is a larger space between the PATO and the C so there may be a letter or two that I am missing.

      From what I can find online, they where for snipping off lemons & oranges.
      Can't find the patent though.
