      Your hand vice had a wooden handle originally, I will post a pic of one soon. The other item is a shoe maker's lasting pliers. Coincidentally I posted some lasting pliers recently (about a week ago) , The two little arms on this one act as the pivot giving more flexibility when the leather is being stretched onto the wooden last. Really nice example and probably a rarer type.

      Stuff, I have experimented with this pliers to see how it works. The "feet" sit flat on the sole of the last with the jaws pointing down. The edge of the leather upper is gripped in the jaws and strained onto the last in the usual way with the points of the "feet" acting as fulcrums. At a certain stage the pliers turns in the outer section allowing the jaws to come closer to the the last and draw the leather flat across the sole of the last. A very cleverly designed tool.
