I offer a variety of hand-forged blacksmith
tongs, handled punches,
hand-forged Japanese style hammers, simple guillotine tool with
dies, and a specialty anvil/swage block. My tools are crafted from years of experience.
* I have relocated overseas, to Taiwan (my
wife's country) and set up shop here. The shipping is quick and reliable and can even be tracked on the US Post Office website.
I can always be reached via my e-mail so please check in with me if you have any questions. I know many people prefer to talk
on the phone and so I will gladly call anyone - just e-mail me your number and the best time to call. Lastly, I want to point
out that I am a proud American. Thanks. Glen. firstname.lastname@example.org

Doing my work from overseas has forced me to think outside
the box leading me to often make changes / improvements to my tongs and other tools I offer. Using different upsetting, drawing,
offsetting and punching techniques, I make my tongs without welding of any kind. My tongs are approximately 11 to 12 inches
in total length and made from 1018 mild steel. I prefer tongs that are shorter and stout. If you are in need a longer tong,
perhaps a pick up style tong for reaching in and out of a larger gas forge to get your workpieces to where you can easily
grasp it with shorter tongs, I would be happy to make you such a tong.
them to hold well - there is hardly anything in blacksmithing more frustrating than having a hot piece of metal jumping around
when you are hammering not to mention dangerous. When it comes to working with hot steel, if you can't hold it right, you
can't hit it right.
Please contact me if you have any questions or comments. I take pride in
my work and want to stress that although I am operating from overseas now, I am still a one-man operation and personally make
all the tongs I sell. If you ever have questions or need help, it is easy to contact me via e-mail. I stand by my work. Thanks
for supporting small business.
