Rapid Tongs

Great product and price point. I just finished my first set of tongs (Rapid) and these are perfect for a beginner like myself. Get the alignment right can be a bit tricky and hot setting groves (optional) was challenging with only two hands but the results speak for themselves. I would definitely recommend these to beginners and seasoned veterans. I purchase ten pair because the price was very affordable. Can't wait to start on the rest.

Rapid success

Great product. Easy enough for a beginner like me to complete, even without a different set of tongs to help.

Gotta love them

Was having major problems with making my own from scratch. Got some of these, and when I finish the set, I will have a much better understanding of the process.

Are you kidding me??? Incredible quality, worth three times the price!

I am so grateful as a newbie smith to be given the chance to forge my own tongs despite not having a huge forge and a big budget. That's exactly what Ken's Custom Iron has allowed me to do and NOBODY else does that. This was my first purchase and will most certainly not be my last.

Great for a beginner

Perfect for a beginner, a good learning opportunity to make them, and you get a useful tool for a fraction of the price of a purchased set of tongs.

Nice for quick set of good tongs

This is the best way to do a starting set of tongs. Quick to make and really good quality. If you don’t have tongs you can still make these with a little thought, planning and welding gloves. Took probably two hours and I didn’t even use a vice to twist the jaws just used my hardy hole and a set of channel locks.
