Item details

These are Railroad Spike Tongs.These are for those of you who work with a lot of railroad spikes. They are made of mild steel so if you get them hot you can cool them off in water. There is a large area behind the jaws to give you clearance for the head of the spike or a curve if you are making a blade or item that needs clearance. They have a beeswax finish on them so they will not marr your work with unknown finishes. They are about 19" long and will also hold 5/8" stock very well. The reigns are rounded to give comfort during long use. These were hand forged in my shop with long term use in mind.

Tongs are great. Well crafted and just what I was looking for as a beginner into blacksmithing. Hopefully soon , I can make my own set.
