Copper Tongs, 8- 1/2 Curved "They are COPPER TONGS. They are nice and long for deeper solutions, they grip well and are far better than the wood chopsticks I had been using. Might have to buy another pair. If I had to give one negative it would be that they are not spread very wide.... maybe 1/4 inch but this could be good or bad depending on your application." read more

"These tongs are wonderful. I'm using them quite a bit in heating copper pieces for use in quilts. I was interested to know just how far down the stem to the handle the copper tongs would heat up and whether or not I could hold them with my bare hands while using the propane torch to heat copper pieces. Answer: Bare hands are fine for me. The copper heating process is a quick one, albeit repetitive with water baths. The tongs remain cool in my hand. Great product/tool; reasonably priced." read more
