Default "What is it?" #118

Once upon a time a lot of woodworkers had these tools..... then came newer types, electric types...... but once these were tools were "KING".

Take a look, tell us what these tools are, not the simple answer.... we all know that. If I wanted to look these up in a catalog what would I find them listed as????? Tell us about them, the why of the shape to the handle, the flat area on the blade, the grind of the tip...... Make your answers good. This is a 24 hour version of the game so if no one gets it in 24 hours the game is over. Why that rule? because I'm give 500 points for the correct complete answer, that's why.

As a bonus I will add 100 points if some one can tell me who made these tools that are shown. Two companies are represented so if you get one right I give you 50, if you get them both you get 100..... and yes this is limited to the 24 hours and yes you have to be the first one with the correct answer(s).

Well the time is up! Sorry we have no winner. Rather then me just out right telling you about these I will let this go for an additional 24 hours with all the points listed PLUS if you can tell me what kind of steel they are made of I throw in 100 bonus points to the winner......

'Cabinetmakers Oval Wood Screwdrivers'
Most screwdrivers are poorly designed for wood screws. The tapered tips slip and damage the screw head. The grind on the end is parallel, not tapered, but the sides are ground back from the tip. The flat on the blade is for applying more torque with a wrench or whatever for flush fit. The oval beech handles are easier to hold and turn than conventional round handles. Made in Sheffield, England with Sheffield steel. Garrett Wade imports some but I'm not sure who the actal manufacture is.
Anyone else know any more???
