I've been looking for something similar - old cyclostyle wheel pens for stencil, which are very similar to what you found. I was convinced they'd be ideal for scoring, and it looks like I was right. Just haven't been able to find any yet myself.
I've got a set like that, but handles are wooden. Other things I've found that work pretty well include a regular dinner knife (no sharp edge) and a penknife turned around - using the /back of the blade/, not the handle
They come as a 3 pack and double ended with a total of 6 different tip sizes, and there's even grips! I have been experimenting with several different tools, and these outperform them all so far
Those are actually amazing for scoring. I find the work best when scoring on the side that will be the inside of the fold.
If you're wondering what their actual purpose is, they're for embossing. You get these plastic stencils that you lay under the page and then you vigorously rub the back of the page with the tool to cause the paper to be embossed into the shape of the stencil. Spent a lot of time contemplating how this could be used to add textures and raised detail to the paper models I've created, but I can't think of a good way to design the stencils... Perhaps it could be easily achieved using a Silhouette to cut out the stencils required from a suitably stiff material.
Vermin King: Not the style you are looking for, but try a search for 'paper theatre' or 'paper theater', and you will find a few pages of epinal figures. Not many, but I know there are a few

shep: Does anyone know where to find decent individual minis of late Roman Republic era civilians? From senator to slave, every mini would be great, as long as they are not legionaires or generals or other military (Praetorian Guard and Roman Vigiles excluded)

oldschooldm: Yup. More power to anyone who tries it. It will only whet the appetite for people who want paper minis that were designed to be paper minis. :-) Fronts and Backs FOREVER! :-) [... it's bait, don't bite it! ... ]

cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.
