    Chisels. Looks like they're the type for carving, or possibly even wood turning since they have such a long handle.

    they are no more than 6" long. note rular in back.
    im going with wood too.
    they arent very well made, so im going to assume for balsa wood modeling?

    Didn't look at the ruler. They're most likely for caving. IDK about balsa wood modeling though. You can usually achieve that with a hobby knife.

    I Agee , the only kind of chisel with that kind of long handle is for a wood lathe .
    Leverage against turning materials..!

    I just don't know dango. I have a set and they are VERY cheaply made. The handles are made out of a lite weight soft wood. When I was using them the metal would set back about 3/4 of an inch over just a short period of using them.

    I think I bought the entire set for like $3-5 at hobby lobby made in of course, China.
