Hello, Brad. The tips look like ones on a chain pliers, but those are usually used for opening a chain link. Pretty neat looking tool!! Regards, Lou

Perhaps simply a general-use hand vise?

I can maybe see it being used to pull together roller chain to get a master link in place.
 Cool item, I would have grabbed it for sure.

I was sorely tempted to post nutcracker.  Is there a chain somewhere nearby you can test it on?  It looks like it could work as a chain holder, however the ones I've used are like the link Lou posted; they have a "hook" to the end of the holder jaws.

For an armorer making chain mail?  Or a detail vise for the jeweler to the Hell's Angels?
