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.

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.

Handy tongs

I'll be ordering three or four more of these. Super handy as flat tongs but can also be made into a specialty tong with a little creativity.
