The sprue cutters (side cutter/nipper) are used to cut the parts off the sprue (main frame).
The sharp knife is used to clean the nub off that is left behind from the sprue after cutting with the sprue cutters.
The sanding sticks smooth the nub that you have cleaned with the knife. They are also used to smooth parts and remove any imperfections like mould lines. Glued parts can be sanded to be level.

Tweezers are used to pick up small parts and also water slide decals.
The cutting mat makes your work space need and avoids the chance of cutting your table when using the knife.
