Hagen Patent Gun Stock Makers Tools / Broach8 Hagen Patent Gun Stock Makers Tools / Broach   R. A. Hagen was granted a patent for his unusual cutting tool design in 1950.  The patent # is 2534816 and it comes up easily with a Google search.  Each of the 8 different sizes shown is marked with the name and patent number.  They look to have never been used.  In the patent he claims they are Gun Barrel Broaches or tools for fitting barrels to gunstocks.  He notes that they could be used in other trades as well.  Note the wheel design of the three on the left.  The idea was you could set it up to cut when pushing, or pulling, and one could rotate the wheel to reveal a new sharp cutting area as needed. The others have cutters that can be removed and changed out or sharpened as needed.  A nice assortment.   Nice & Different.

There is no finish left, but it is damage free.  A good user.

Folding Blade Race KnifeFolding Blade Race Knife   This is a super piece, in super condition.  Note the file work and chamfered edges.  The second folding blade is an unusual feature.  The mark says George Grau Barman, or Darmen.  Not much turned up about him or the firm with a Google Search.  These were used to mark lumber with things like ID marks, or I have been told for such things as marking the water line on a hull in boatbuilding.
