Not for corn cob pipes.

How about another hopefully more helpful but not give-it-away hint?

yes yes yes!!! Good job!

You're up, marigene!

Edit:

The second picture is of the nibber. The quill is inserted into that hole and the cutter will shape the nib. The other end is the knife, used to create the slit to hold the ink and to resharpen the quill.
