These were found at thrift store for $5 pc. Do not have a clue what if any purpose or value they have? Any help would be appreciated...both wood handle's..1 is engraved.

    How big are they, & what does the bottom end of the handles look like?
    The blade (business end) of the bottom one in first picture is hand forged.

    They look like ice climbing picks. Just a guess.

    It looks like the one with the light wood handle is an adze blade and the other a pick like blade. The adze blade doesn't look sturdy enough to carve wood. Also the curved handle reminds me of Polynesian or Eskimo tools. If Eskimo they could be for carving ice.
