These hookah coal tongs are fantastic! I thought that they were for a habachi when I was ordering them, so that is what I am using them for, since I don't have a hookah! They would be great for grabbing the bowl and putting it on when or if I get one! They are fantastic for moving individual coals as I need them in my hibachi so I can cook the food evenly, and great for adding wood flavor chips for smoking the food. They don't get super hot but I still wear a silicone glove to be safe! For whatever you use them for, they are fantastic and durable!
