The first tool appears somewhat akin to the Bicycle Research portable freewheel tool. Those were meant to toss in your panniers so a freewheel could be removed on the road. A stick or something was supposed to be scrounged to use as a lever. Obviously this tool won't work for that. It looks like the smaller 'horns' are meant to engage a cog. I don't know what it is, but my best guess is that it's meant to remove fixed gear cogs.
I believe Iíve seen those use with a freewheel and a road sign? Holes should match up pretty well, nice and solid in ground lever.
