I Forge Iron

Special unknown tongs


Recommended Posts


Someone asked me if i knew what this tong is used for and i dont know. It's a very special pair of tongs with three jaws from sweden. The middle jaw is apparently loose and there are many more in sweden in different sizes and shapes. The only thing i can think of is that it is used for forge welding or maybe some farriers work.


Can anyone in here help me out?

I don't know specifically, I've never seen their like but holding two pieces for welding seems like a reasonable use to me. Heck that's what I'd use them for if I had a pair. 

You could pinch two toes at a time through the holes in a pair of clogs with them. :rolleyes:
