    I need help identifying these small tools. The three tools are about six inches long and appear to be for fine work. My initial guess is that they are for finish shaping in glass blowing. The shafts range in diameter from 3/16 to 1/8 to 1/16. The tips are cone shaped with a slight curvature to the conical surface and are finely finished. The handles are unusually shaped as can be seen. They remind me of how the Japanese might make a tool. Any info out there for me? Rogerww

      No comments in five years? Consider the possibility of burnishes for cabinet scrapers

      @Motoolz's suggestion is a good one.

      They look homemade, albeit to a high standard.

      Are the wooden handles cocobolo?
