Looks like a saw set... (For setting the teeth on a saw after sharpening.)

Different saws take different saw sets- see? Saw. See saw.

Yah- no pokin' da hocus.

Seriously there are hand saws- they need different sets depending on rip saw, cross cut saw, back saw- and circular saws, BIG crosscut saws, buck saws, etc etc etc. Used to watch Grandad set and sharpen a handsaw- his test- when finished, flip saw so teeth were up, tilt at angle, lay a sewing needle in the valley of the teeth- needle should slide the length of the saw, riding in the alternate left-right-left of the teeth.

It is VERY labor intensive. However, before the cheap electric hand saw, you could work yourself to death with a dull handsaw. Or zip thru a 2x4 in nothing flat with a sharpened, properly set saw. I have two good Swedish and 2 good English handsaws that can cut a board while most folks are looking for the extension cord.

And after TEOTWAWKI, I still have saws that work- along with a working brace and bit, hand planes, drawing knives, and double bitted axes that swing as if drawn to the wood.
