A patinated bronze handmade pair of tongs made for holding incense burning coals while you light them.
The color of the metal bronze recalls the warmth of sun, bringing a warm and earthy touch to your practice.
They measure 5.25 inches long, and 1.75 inches wide.
They will warm up as you hold the hot coal near a flame, and if you feel they are getting too hot just put the coal down and give the tongs a chance to cool off a little.
note: This piece may tarnish over time or contact with interesting materials, and you may wish to polish it with a non-toxic metal polishing solution. If you are using them to light coals, they will develop a thick black soot on the tips, which can be cleaned with denatured alcohol or similar cleaning agent, and abrasive scrubbers.
