I have no clue as to how the tool was used, but it doesn't appear to be a
farrier or blacksmith tool. It is too short to get the leverage needed to
pull horseshoes. Also, it is designed so the jaws shouldn't close down
tightly. The two bumps on the inside of the handles opposite each other
should limit how tightly the jaws can close.
The shape and size suggest that it is for fine bending and shaping, but I
have no idea of the materials on which it would be used.
