      When someone learns how to forge metal some of the first things they might make are other types of forging tools. I think that is what this is.

      @Idonttnoe - I'm having trouble understanding your comment.

      Would you be able to reorient your photos please. And perhaps better to just photo the 'whateveritis' on its own, with a couple of different aspects. Also, would you please describe the item.

      They look similar to hoof trimmers, but it`s just a guess.

      It looks like something I just researched that I found. Mine was ferrier's hoof nippers, but both handles on mine are straight were straight.

      Ez egy dróthúzó fogó . A drót készítésénél használták , a fogóval megfogod a drót végét és a horogba akasztott kézzel húzod keresztül a lyukon , egyre kisebb lyukon . Régen míg kézzel készítették a drótot így csinálták.

      This is a wire tongs. Used to make the wire, you use the pliers to grab the end of the wire and drag it through the hole, the smaller the hole, with your hand hooked. It used to be like this when it was handmade.
