Excellent for a novice metal worker.
These are a huge improvement over the hand me down tongs I was using before. Just an FYI, they swing as right hand tongs, perfect for left hand dominant smiths.
Awsome hammer and tongs feel real good in the hand cant wait to use them cheers team
My son started making his own forges when he was 9. He is now 13. Alec Steele has been a favorite and an inspiration. It is a privilege to have a tool from his company. We were so pleased when it came in. The quality is impeccable and to have a hand made tool is so special. It feels great in the hand and moves smoothly! We highly recommend it!
My favorite tongs they grip everything and very comfortable. Thanks Alec and the rest of the team for such amazing products!!
I needed a good grip tong for small stock that would also work as pick up tongs and to grab the occasional whatever stock. These are the tongs to use.
These are my go to tongs when quenching my blades. Sure secure. The handles are a little thin for my liking but the jaws hold tight. What more could you ask for!
Super smooth super fast. Great product.
Incredible tongs. Granted they are sized for smaller bar, but with a quick taper down to something I could grab, I can use these on practically any size bar. The handle has a good spring to it so I know I won't loose whatever material I am holding.They are my go to flat bit tongs and I hope to see more types of tongs in the future. holding. Are you still reading this?? Buy these tongs now you will not regret it.
These are great! Sooo much better than the first cheap pair I bought. They’re a great size for knife making. It definitely makes it easy to move your project around on the anvil without dropping anything.

Nice little pair of tongs, as advertised. Can confirm, does grab steel.
Well made, light and whippy!
Great for working 1/4" square and flat stock
The Jaws don't line up that well and it opens and closes alittle hard. I hope to make better quality when I make them myself.
Bought for my husband for Christmas he was thrilled
Love the tongs!! Having great fun with a soup can forge in the backyard.
I really like the tong jaws and overall length. I don’t really like the reins, which are too slender and have more of an edge than I prefer. If the didn’t taper to such a small diameter and had a more oval shape, they would be great. As they are, I don’t reach for them as often as I’d imagined.
Theyre the first tongs ive ever baught before, and they work fantastically! Im a beginner blacksmith, and the flatbit tongs have unlocked so many new possibilities for me and what i make. To anyone whose just starting off, Alec Steele youtube and theyre store has been the most helpful tool in my arsenal.
