Our large foldaway wooden tongs are made from two pieces of machined cherry wood, held together with a single simple brass pin and use the natural springiness of wood to provide tension. These tongs were designed by Wood Artist Paul Szewc and are handmade at our Guelph, ON workshop.


Approximately 12 1/2" long x 1 1/2" wide.


Quickly unfolding with one hand the tongs are easily squeezed together, can securely hold large and small items, and being made from wood they can be safely used on all types of cooking pans or surfaces without damaging them. Treated with food grade mineral oil and with no glue used these tongs are a natural and non-toxic cooking utensil that can quickly fold up for storage.

As wood is a natural living product it can be a little unruly; knots, streaking, other blemishes and flaws in the grain can occur during the natural growth of the tree. These may be present in all our products to some degree but we do control for anything that will seriously interfere with the use or look of our items. We at Masterpiece Lasered Wood, the home of the famous "Wonky" furniture design believe these imperfections add a uniqueness to our products and LOVE us some rebellious wood grain or an interesting knot here or there that doesn't interfere with the use of the item. If you specifically want an interesting grain pattern or knot in your order, let us know and we will try to find something for your tastes.
