We have most major brands of Blacksmith Tongs and our own brand as well. Work holding can be a difficult job and a dangerous one if your stock is not secure. There are no blacksmithing tongs nor knife making tools that will be totally universal. Types of tongs with the "universal" in the name generally indicate MORE versatility. Special blacksmith tongs and blacksmith pliers designed for holding certain sizes and shapes will always be the safest option, such as scrolling tongs and pliers. As a general rule tongs are not meant to be left on the stock while in the fire. Tongs that get hot enough to show color will likely lose their shape. There are always some processes that leaving tongs on the stock is helpful, but if there is another way than it is recommended. Therefore tong rings or tong locks should not be the norm. The amount of holding power a tong has is directly related to the length of the reins versus the length of the jaw or bit. Shorter jaws and longer reins give better grip. We have pickup tongs, flat tongs, vbit tongs, box tongs, round jaw tongs, wolf jaw tongs, universal tongs, blade tongs, z-jaw tongs, economy tongs and a whole lot more. Choose from over 50 different styles of forge tongs
We have Economy Imports tongs with balls on end of reins
