no. 1 ...a wedge (as near as I can figure) this piece is uniface and expertly crafted. I could imagine splitting a nice piece of Osage Orange with wedges like this prepping for a bow build. Sorry nothing for reference ...abt 5" long, 2" at high point

no. 2 ... the way the cutting edge is somewhat crushed says wood working to me. Some type of spoke shave or ??? Both are uniface.

Good eye on the first one -- heavy crushing/stepping indicate use as a piece esquille (splitting wedge). Not many would pick up on that (or reason it through).

The other two aren't detailed enough in your pictures to say much about except that they were tools, and used.

FWIW
