These grill tongs are a lighter version of my standard ones I decided to try making. They are almost identical to the heavier version but are half the weight at just over one pound.
Tongs are just over 16″ in length making them great for staying back from the hot grill. The spring is solid steel and riveted to the tongs securely. There’s no wimpy spring that will break on these.
Forged from 3/8″ solid steel.
I may make a light version like this again in the future but for now I figured I’d sell these off and revisit the idea again in the future. This makes these grill tongs one of a kind.
These are coated with a food safe beeswax. After use clean the utensil by hand washing. DO NOT place in a dishwasher. Dry the utensil by hand using a cloth. Periodically you should rub a light coating of oil (vegetable or canola are a few recommended options) on the utensil. Treat it like cast iron.
If you do get some surface rust, then you can use a non-abrasive scrubbing pad pad, or a wire brush if you have one, to clean off the rust. Afterwards rub a light coat of oil over everything.
If you follow these directions, then your utensil will last you a lifetime and more!
