Best tong blanks ever

I was able to shape these tongs for the project at hand very easily. Getting tong blanks from kens is much more economical when you’re starting out over getting square or round stock and making tongs from that

Great tongs Love American Made

Great sets of tongs good packaging and color instructions. Nice to have YouTube videos on how to finish them. I could of found a cheaper alternative but I love supporting American business. Would buy again. Looking forward to buying more products in the future.

Good but a bit fiddly

I have bought several sets of tongs from Kens and the quality is top notch. The only issue I had with the knife tongs was they did NOT want to line up. All of the other sets I bought have gone together pretty easily. It probably had more to do with me than the tong blanks but it was a little frustrating. Once I got them lined up they work pretty well. I will still be buying all my tongs from Kens!

4th or 5th purchase.

Great item, if you are new, these are super easy to complete. If you are more experienced, these are easy to customize. I might have 10 pair of Ken's tongs

Works great

The only problem I had with making these was the step down. Once I got that it went very easy. Used them for the first time this morning and made things so much easier.
