Granted, an experienced smith can bang out a pair of tongs in just a few minutes, but when you are new, building skills, or just want or need to dedicate your time to other things, these blanks are the best. I turned out several pairs in very short order and with minimal effort. Not only that, but the design is infinitely adjustable and the finished tongs are superbly well balanced. Kudos Ken, a real winner of a product!
I’ve yet to put them together but I think it’s a great beginner project or just a way to make a nice pair of tongs quickly so you can spend your time on bigger projects.
exactly what i was looking for
I'm brand new to blacksmithing and these blanks are exactly what i was looking for, I'll have the tool i want and some practice in the techniques involved.
