Amongst others I have these tools in my garage. The clippers are about three feet tall. They are old and the wood handles have a couple small splits. The red handled hammer has a wedge on both ends. The hammer with the long end is the strangest thing I have ever seen. None of these has markings on them. Does anyone know what they are or what they were used for?

Mystery Solved

    Both hammers are blacksmith tools, ones a punch and the other helps fold or bend, the cutters seem to be for reaching up high or far away but they are just hedge shears....

    Thanks for the information. I wonder how they ended up here. I think I will display them. The clippers are very awkward to use. I guess they are for high hedges. I cannot imagine someone cutting anything with them. They don't look like they are machine made. I think I will clean them up.
