This is a nice pair of hardwood Leather Stretchers, one marked and the other basically identical but with no maker's mark. The one that is marked, reads C.S. OSBORNE .

Actually, I don't know what this item is at all. It came to us with several wooden planes, and looks like it was also used for planing, but with a very narrow blade.

An angled 1.25cm (1 inch) wide hole runs through the wood from here, like a plane would have. Well made, heavy. Handsome - just don't know what it is.
B. O. Paine Co. Slate Nail Ripper Cutter Rare Antique

As you can see in the pictures, this one has not been used much, and it's in great shape overall, with very good cutting sections, basically sharpened all the way around the arrow shaped tip. A nice rare antique tool!
