I offer a variety of hand-forged blacksmith tongs, handled
top tools: punches (round, square, slot) & hot cutter, and Japanese style, hand-forged hammers. My tools are professional
quality and made to last.
* 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.

Doing my work from overseas has forced me to think outside
the box and has led me to make changes and improvements in my tongs and other tools I offer. Using different upsetting and
drawing techniques, I make my tongs without welding of any kind which is a great improvement from the past. My tongs have
heft and a very positive feel when holding metal. Also, I now taper the jaws of all my traditional tongs. This makes for a
much stronger tong as it allows me to leave more metal in a crucial spot, near the offset for the jaws.
I guarantee 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. All tongs are approximately 13 inches in total length.
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.
