    A friend of mine came across these in a field. They look like splitting mauls, but what's with the weird curved one? That doesn't look like it would split very well. I told him to send pictures and I'd see what the experts here thought of them. Is it some kind of bark remover, or kindling shaver, or? ? ?

    Too big for railroad spikes. I like the idea of stone chisels, that seems more likely than wood splitters.
