The larger saw has an antler handle and is used for cutting blanks from the raw material such as antlers and bones, and for cutting comb teeth. The smaller is for cutting decorative lines and for working raw material such and amber. Some of the straight decorative lines on Viking objects such as combs are V shaped in cross section, so were cut with a knife or chisel. Others have flat bottoms and parallel sides, so were cut with a saw.
