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.

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.
Great product Great Value
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.

Very happy with the purchase and the service! Will be shopping there again
You can do it!
If you are a total beginner, you still can have success as I did. Take your time. Keep the reigns straight and if your drawing out skills are not quite there yet, just round the corners off. I used a hack saw to get a kerf in the jaws. Make use of a file for rough spots. Though complicated-looking there is no twist to worry about. I sized mine for 5/8" bar stock. Of all the blanks I have bought, these were the most satisfying.
Tongs you’re way
These quick tongs are as the name implies. I keep a couple on hand because I might just need a specific fit. Awesome for newbies, they come with comprehensive instructions. Good job !!!!
