Could be used as grass clippers, but that isn't what they were designed to do.

I know of one fellow who lost his ponytail to this item.

If you walk up to a pen with 20,000 sheep and them is your tool. You will have very strong hands and a very sore back when your done. For a couple it's doable but the mechanical shears are nice for more.

I would imagine that if you used those for making a living shearing sheep, you'd have heck of a grip and strong forearm. TT got this one correct. Sheep shears.

Well heck, I wish I could post a photo here.

When I lived in Oregon, my native american husband made an awesome knife from one side of the sheep sheers. It's crude but as he said, the natives made weapons from about any metal they could scrounge from the white guys.

I found a small set at a junk store. Probably made for a woman or child. I used it to make a knife for him just like the one he made for me.

A deer leg bone is inserted into the inner curve of one side of the handle and wrapped with heavy rawhide. It holds an edge pretty well. Makes a good utility knife.
