If both jaws are flat, the first thing that comes to mind is a saw setting tool, but I am not strong on that idea. I have never seen one quite like that.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

Thanks! That make sense because the two large jaws don’t move and closing the handles makes a “V” jaw move down into back area of large jaws. Got them in a estate sale in a tool box with other stuff which included two glass scoring tools

Technical name is “Glass Running Pliers”. Can still buy them but most guys just put a pencil under the score and push down on both sides and let the glass run out on its own following the score.

John and Indy are correct. They ARE saw set pliers.
