Case one snaps off while you are out riding the fence line.    Maybe this was made before the "Fencing Pliers" came out?     Besides, made a good self-defense weapon....:ph34r:

 

After all, these are just...pliers..

Utica   1932 - 10-1/4"    From Utica NY, USA    Dad's pliers.     The "hook " was more for digging into a post..

Staple puller, hammer, two sizes of wrenches, two sizes of wire cutters.   Cowboy all-in-one tool.   Wrench part was also to splice wires together. 

Is actually a electricians tool for hanging wire. Knob and tube, later bx and Romex. Staple puller helped i n replacing lines or mishammered Staples.  I agree the hammer with the hooks is for rolling timbers on a Alaskan sawmill instead of trying to roll them with just hands.

Well, at least it is NOT a Bisaigue..

 

Fence pliers,  Cowboy tool Kit.     Farmers around here used them all the  time repairing farm fence rows.  

 

The old Staple puller?   Might have been for those big staples used to hold the Lightning Arrestor  cables.    Them were the HUGE ones....

I saw those Stick. I was thinking maybe this was a lot earlier version.

I have 2 power wagons w/ split rims '44 and '67 and the tire tool kits contain nothing like what's here...

on the flip side it could be a European tire tool.. or one from yestercentury...

Maybe used to remove the shoes from draft horses?

Could also have been a single tool made by a blacksmith to someone's specification.  Something such as a silversmith or coppersmith and used to stipple the inside of small bowls.
