    I think they look more like something used for plaster. Not flat, modeling

    Wow--1170 views in two months, two replies and we are still looking for an answer. The blade edges are sharp so definitely for carving something -needing leverage for the long hands or from a distance. Could be for giant oysters. Thanks for your replies.

    Too big for kolrosing I think. Your location gives a good clue, I've seen similar "hook" knives used for carving totems and described on one site as Pacific Northwest style hook knives. I never know when links are allowed, but this video shows a carver using a similar knife to carve a totem pole. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TRLW8hOW8Rw. The knife work starts around 5:45

    Thanks for the link. The blades he was using were similar with the flat bottom and double bevels on top and varied angles and profiles. The logo/stamp I tried to highlight didn't bring up any web info. I was thinking totem carving was a logical choice but couldn't find any info. I will ask an old timer carver I know get his opinion. Thanks.
