    I don't recognise them as being a military issue pattern of any sort.

    My best guess would be that they are one off workshop made.

    I assume they don't have any markings.

    The bottom item doesnt look like a knife, its more like an awl or a leather bradle, possible to do with a saddler?

    The bottom one is not a knife, but an instrument called a Rumen Trochar used by vets to relieve blote in cattle.
