Any problem getting in and out of Customs with those?

I was beginning to wonder where you have been! It is good to have you back, Dick! I trust you'll post some pics of your adventures? Sounds like a lot of fun!

More evidence that we as Americans really take our daily life for granted. Probably less than .5% of people under the age of 50 would have a clue on how to use those hand tools.

I’m sure they were all designed to do something specific, or for a special want of the owner.

Nice addition to your collection.
