These salad tongs are hand made from cherry wood. They are robust enough for turning heavy to light ingredients in cooking or serving, and feel smooth, calm and reliable in the hand. They beg to be held and used. The wood was sourced from legacy-cut, reclaimed, repurposed, or sustainably-produced woods. The maker strongly believes in the re-use of once-used timbers, culled from old houses, barns or broken furniture. It gives the piece a life and history it would not otherwise have. These tongs are 15" in length, and are finished fully food safe for any food application.
