From the primitive to the modern, these hand held objects have the same function.

Well I thought about sharpening tools; and then saw Kip's post, and couldn't understand how a man in a prison for stealing a lorry load of booze [for our American friends the series was called Porridge over here, but I think 'Doing Time in a USA] but then I thought about the surname, and I seem to remember that a 'fletcher' was a person who made or sold arrows ~ so could they be for making sure the shafts are true and straight

Thanks RL, Kips comment flew by me without a sound. By the way the name for arrow in Spanish is flecha.

Far to complex for this old Devon boy, the series that followed Porridge was the clue, s'pecially the signature tune..

[QUOTE="TwiztedAngel, post: 5054995]What about arrow shaft tools?[/QUOTE]
So they are, but not quite enough information.

That's what I was looking for, they are all arrow straighteners.
