Do you have an old plumber in the family? I have a couple of similar ones that I got in a package deal from a fellow whose grandfather did plumbing work in NYC at the turn of the (last) century. He said they were used for working with lead pipe in the days when joints and unions (particularly ones at odd angles that didn't lend themselves to off-the-shelf unions) were made by piercing and scraping the pipes to fit roughly together with similar tools to these, then patching with oakum and pouring molten lead around them to complete the seal. For obvious reasons there's not much call for that type of work or the tools that did it nowadays!
