Quick Box Jaw Tong Blanks

This item worked great! Made a test pair, modified slightly to make 5/8’’ square bar. Then taught 2 others to make their set. All were successful! Thanks to all at Ken’s Custom Iron!

Fantastic product easy to get done

Absolutely love the this product. On the scale of 1-5 I would say it is level 2, not hard to do at all. Might not be the best looking tongs ever been made but I am very proud of myself lol. Thank you Ken, you are the best.

Easy Peasy!

Constructing these tongs was not only a simple task, but an educational one as well. Learning to make these blanks into tongs has taught me more about tong construction, a lesson I will be able to use in future forging endeavors.

Ken’s Custom Iron Box Jaw Tongs

Made my box jaw tongs this weekend, both sizes (Rapid and Quick models) came out great. Set each one up to handle different size square and rectangular stock. In fact, I’ve now got both sizes of all of Ken’s tongs, and just love them. The printed instructions along with the YouTube videos make it a breeze. There’s nothing worse than trying to forge when you don’t have the right tongs to hold your stock tightly, never again!!

Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy

I just got started in blacksmithing as a hobby about a year ago and bought some of my first tongs from various vendors online. On average I paid $40.00 - $50.00 per tong. Those tongs are nice, but definitely take a big bite out of your bank account. I found Ken's website and was ecstatic to see that I could buy the "Do it yourself" tongs for a third of the cost or less. I bought numerous tongs from Ken and have been forging them a little at a time. The instructional videos on YouTube are incredibly helpful as well for a beginner like me. I will definitely be buying more supplies from Ken's as needed.

Excellent Quality. Great price. I purchased 5 tongs for the price of one. They are easy to assemble and you can customize them to fit your needs. Best tongs on the market.
