Created by Tom Littledeer, a master woodworker and designer of aerodynamic canoe paddles, these handcrafted maple tongs are inspired by the fluid shape and smooth lines of his paddles. Handcrafted from a single piece of solid North American maple, a durable, bacteria-resistant hardwood. Meticulously shaped and sanded to a smooth finish. Designed to lift and turn food with ease. Provides a comfortable and secure grip. Safe for use with nonstick finishes, glass and porcelain.
