RR Spike Envy

Big brother or little brother makes no difference when talking about these tongs. Awesome quality and price. Buy them, get em' hot, hammer them into submission to the way you desire, simple rivet, and "Presto"....they become what you need. They need to be functional for you beyond anything else...and you can make them as pretty as you want. These fit the bill!

Great customer service

Called because I had some technical problems and was helped and the issue was solved as soon as it happened. Prices are great. Pictures with directions was good. Like to see some 3d art of what each step should be like.

Quick Rail Spike Tongs

This is my first experience with Ken's Custom Iron and I could not be more please with the product and the service. I am new to Blacksmithing and the quality of the product coupled with the Video instructions were excellent. It provided adequate instruction while challenging me, which was very satisfying, and the end result was a great pair of tongs. Couldn't have completed my first rail spike knife without it. Thanks guys! Matt
