Tongs are a type of hand tool used for gripping and holding objects. They typically have two jaws, joined at the top by a hinge. Tongs can be used for various tasks, including picking hot objects, transferring food to a cooking pot, and handling delicate items.
The forging process of tongs involves shaping the metal using heat and pressure. First, the metal is heated in a furnace until it is malleable. Next, it is placed on an anvil and hammered into the desired shape. Finally, the tongs are cooled in water or oil to harden them.
