Friends and Family love this hookah tongs...They are cool and safe to the touch, elegant looking and absolutely the best pair of coal tongs we have ever tried...they are long enough so that you don't get burned, the coals fit ringht in the slot and even picking up the bowl without using gloves (oven mitts) is way better. Nevcer had a pair this long. Glad someone thought about us when they made these. Very durable Stainless Steel.. We aboslutely love it! This is a must buy for any hookah user. I recommend to Family and Friends!
