Thanks for visiting :) I think I might know but I'll try to find out for sure.

From looking around and reading descriptions it looks like a hammer used to drive wooden dowels for furniture building.

The odd shaped head was used to drive in a particular sized dowel without marring the surrounding wood.

It's indeed a curious relic.

Hammer thank's for the info. Did you click on the web album on the bottom picture and check out the others also, There's a total of 3.

The other two are hard to identify.

The one with the y shaped head on one side looks like a blacksmithing type.

The greenish colored one reminds
me of one that is used to build barb-wire fencing.

Where did you get them?
