    And once more, like those shown earlier, these pictured here 'as recovered' without the slightest attempt at cleaning.

    These five range in size, and shape slightly, only the largest appears to have any markings on it that I really can't make out as much of anything yet. What makes them all generally similar (but different too) is their unusually thinnish blade profile shape, and all uniquely machined cutting edge bevels.

    They strike me as something a stone mason would use for something, but that's only a guess on my part -- if anyone knows better, please leave a comment with a clue! :-) :-) :-)

      Those are called Cape Chisels used for cutting keyways in machinery.

      @sharpguy has got it but to add to his comment they can also be used for cutting oil galleries.
