Looks Like a Saw Set, used to set the teeth on a hand saw, my guess anyway- mike

A tool for creating massive blood blisters and set a hand saw. Jim

Saw set was my first thought but not with that pointed jaw. And how would it fit over the blade with the L-shaped end? Some kind of crimping tool?

Yes it is a saw setting tool, however it also looks like a pigs ear notching tool!

I wouldn't have guessed a saw set until you showed it on the saw. I have a large Disston saw set, the pliers type, built for crosscut saws like that but it's not built like that one at all.

At first glance, it does look more like a hog ear notching tool than any saw set I've ever seen.
However, it doesn't look like the "V" part actually fits into a depression like a normal ear notcher.
And....I don't see a need for the fine adjustment screws for a notcher either.
So.....it seems to really be a fancy saw setting tool.
Because it is so unusual, it may be very, very old.
As someone mentions, there would have originally been a spring on the knobs between the handles.
Another nice tool to clean up and hang in your shop as a decoration and "conversation piece".
