Well there is not really much to write about this item. It is pretty much self explanatory. The tongs are very sturdy and made solid. They are bigger so it will definitely keep your hand safe from any heat or anything to that nature. They are made of stainless steel and the color of mine are black matte. With these tongs you can even pick up a hookah bowl to make changes or dump. These tongs pretty much make it safe to handle anything on a hookah at anytime. I think it was a great buy, but lets see what you all think.
