    #3 I would say would be for removing ash, carbon form bottom of ovens.

    #1 for cutting shepherds pie, or some what like it? Haggis maybe?

    Here's my guess.

    #3. Some kind of dry goods scoop. Rolled edge not good for scraping, but practical for use in scooping things from burlap or cotton sacks. No drain holes, so I'm eliminating any cheesemaking application.

    #1. Everyone knows that you use a Claymore for cutting the Haggis! Seriously, it appears too blunt to be an actual cutting instrument. Some kind of scraping operation, like for raclette, but the handle offset would make it unwieldly.

    Bootscraper for the butcher shop?

    #4. Oyster opener?

    I am thinking haggis just because the old way was in a pie like shape. Hense the reason for the offset handle.

    As I was reading your post I was thinking for cutting tofu too.

    That was one of my guesses, as well. To make blocks while in a mould.

    for #3 your way off thinking is in the wrong direction think upright.

    #4 oyster knife

    This is a fun game, but it's driving me nuts.
    #1 has to be for cutting something while it's still in a container. His clue: "it's for a special dish" was both referring to the food that it's cutting and the dish that the food is in. It would have to be something soft that could be easily push-cut and that is too delicate to take out of the dish to cut it. Tofu was a great guess, but the knife looks European / western in style. Sooo... that makes me think maybe dairy of some sort? Butter? Cheese?

    #3 Has to be for liquid... But what kind of liquid? It looks like is supposed to be pressed straight down (handle up) into a barrel or big container. The liquid would flow over the front edge / open side. Then you tip it up to carry without spilling. This design would make getting liquid out of the bottom of the container much easier than with a scoop shaped more like a traditional cup / cylinder. But what liquid???
