Found these in my Dad's collection. Any ideas of what they are called and what they were used for? The top tool is 11 3/4" and the bottom one (with one end like a flat screwdriver) is 6".

    Without a scale to tell the size I would offer 2 possibilities, o ring removal tools possibly a spring hook. But would lean to o ring removal. – Ed Beal Nov 27 '18 at 12:56

    FYI the next time you post a tool like that for identification it helps to put something next to it to indicate some kind of scale. A coin or a ruler for example – ratchet freak Nov 27 '18 at 13:04

    That top one looks like dental tool, no? Oh, you know what? Leather tools is my bet. – Evil Elf Nov 27 '18 at 13:22

    The top tool could be used to remove "packing" from the packing gland of a shaft seal. Of course there could be many other uses. – d.george Nov 30 '18 at 12:07

A reasonable guess would be cotter pin extractors. Here's a picture of similar tool from Snapon. The bottom one looks vaguely like a different style with one pointed end to pull and a flat one to spread the pins.
