Stone chisels? or leather tool?

Looks more for working stone than for leather to me.  A bit heavy for leather.

They are called pinking irons.  They are leather working tools.  Nice find, I get 15.00 each for everyone that I find.

Thank you for the update.   learned something new today.   familiar with pinking shears, just never knew about these.   i have cleaned them up on the brass wheel and they're still really sharp.
