At least one of those bolts is a joke. The one on the right of the tapered hole pair. Think about it. Maybe they all are 🔨

A big hammer is otherwise known as a 'Manchester screwdriver'

there seems to be regional differences

I know it as a "Scottish screwdriver"

I have also seen "Birmingham screwdriver"

Err! Yes my tongue almost burst out of my cheek Bodgers Bolts is a good name for them. In Liverpool we called a hammer a Brummie Screwdriver or a Knocking Stick. Mind you I could probably find a use for one or two of them .The first one in longer lengths especially.I have something in mind to produce something once better i.e. Hips fixed 😁 🙏

I am the Hammer, so called because if I can't do it with a hammer no one can. As you say screwdriver, claw doubles as an axe, chisel, spanner & nail extractor, the length of 14 inches the distance between studs & rafters, and if hit hard enough makes a beautiful 1 1/8 hole. That's all that comes to mind at present. Hammer

I think Peter Paul and Mary were looking for you a while back 'Hammer'.
If I had a hammer, I'd hammer in the morning, I'd hammer in the evening, All over this land
I'd hammer out danger, I'd hammer out a warning, I'd hammer out love between my brothers and my sisters, All over this land.
