The finest of craftsmanship goes into creating these tongs. Each set of tongs is hand steamed and bent into shape to create the distinctive springs, which not only keep the tongs open but also allow tongs to fold flat for storage. The tong's ends meet perfectly making it easy to serve salad, pasta, or steamed vegetables with one hand. A care tag comes with the tongs that describes how tongs are made and gives directions for use. Tongs measure 11" x 1 5/16". With a mineral oil finish.
