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!

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

Quick and easy

I haven’t been forging long and had never done a rivet but the video was very informative and I was able to put mine together very quick and easy. My rivet looks pretty sad but it will definitively hold forever. I’m probably going to end up buying the kit so I have a bigger selection.

The RR spike tong blanks are excellent.

However, I must not have followed the instructions perfectly as the flat jaw would not contact the spike head when closed. This was easily corrected by welding a piece of 3/16 x 1” bar on top of the flat jaw.

Outstanding product

As a new blacksmith these are a big help. I’m sure seasoned smiths will love them as well. Can’t have to many tongs. Good instructions hard copy and on YouTube. I like supporting a small business and thanks for a great product.
