I actually did do it but I didn’t like how splotchy it looked where the ti wasn’t really clean. I tried it again after using the wire wheel and it looked even worse. Did the wire wheel again and called it quits. 

Here’s what they looked like blue/purple.

Ranchmanben, these tongs simply look awesome!  I intend to draft them on paper (copy the design, that is!) and have a go at it. Do you mind? Would 3/8x1" starting stock seem right? At the shoulder, you seem to be offsetting from both sides..  any reason?  Thanks, I have been avoiding tong making for too long. I just got into it and I love the puzzle and the satisfaction. Thanks for sharing!

for myself  the  Jaw formation and offset is the key with this kind of tong vs rein forging or slitting so figured this was the key point.. Sorry.. 

Actually, I think I was blind. This might be it ;-)   Thanks for reposting that vid!
