Bolts & Fasteners
Off -Center 18" blacksmith tongs to hold flat stock as you create your blade.
Sometimes called "Z v-bit" tongs" due to the offset.
These knife making tongs are offset just enough to bypass the pivot joint so you can hold anywhere along your blade blank.
Blacksmith tong set includes 4 smallest sizes
Drop Forged in the USA
I got the 1 1/4 and am impressed at the solid build. I have seen others that were kinda whimpy, but these have some heft.
The blade tongs are of great design and quality. Although their primary purpose is for blades, they work well holding square stock too normally encountered with ornamental blacksmithing. I highly recommend Off Center Tongs. Every Off Center tong I own is consistent in quality and work well.
