The blunt hooks were mainly used as tools for different purposes. They were used as pulleys to hold ropes into place. This was used for construction and to lift objects from one location to another. The blunt hooks were thicker than the sharper ones as it obviously needed the extra reinforcement to hold objects into place.

There were also thin angled hooks that were used for fishing. The Ancient Romans took part in fly fishing and fished in the rivers with bait attached to the hook. They don't look much different to the hooks we use for fishing small fish in modern times.
