Description: Rusted tongs made out of heavy metal with very long handles. There are two joints where the handles rotate on each other and the mouth of the tongs are flat with a dent on one half of the mouth.

This is the perfect style for holding flat stock on edge (very useful for blade smiths) replacing the often bulkier box-jaw tongs. _http://www.gstongs.com/id9.html_
