Hi
Any thoughts on the use of these tools?

Scale for size reference.

Thanks

Bottom two are what I'd call a Cape chisel.  For metal work, useful to have if the need arises.  Sort of used the same way that a woodworking chisel would be but for metal.  The bottom one looks like edge is either very dull or reground and is realistically just a cold chisel now.  Top one i can't tell - maybe a bearing scraper?

Thanks for the answers. They were my grandfather’s tools.

1980 found me as a Pipefitter Apprentice and bottom ones look like Gouge Chisels we had to remove broken pieces of threaded male pipe broken off / stuck in female fittings .

A Cape chisel was also used to cut new key-way slots onto steel shafts....
Show me a picture, I'll build a project from that

I learned something new again. I have a few "cape chisels" and I never knew what they were for.

A very crude keyway.. but still a keyway....tough to do on a hardened steel shaft.

Bottom one is a ruler, but some people call it a scale.
