"X" markings on old C.S. Osborne tools...?

I use certain C.S. Osborne tools for leatherwork.
Some of the older tools are marked with one, two, or three "Xs" as part of the stamped label.
Jokes about "XXX" aside <g>, might any of you know what that designation means.
Thanks for any help on this,

If you email... Please remove the "SPAMLESS."
