    Found a pair of tongs in a bix of tools i dragged out of my great-grandfather's shop. What are they?

    They were rusty when I found them. I cleaned them up with an electrolysis bath and painted in low-gloss black enamel.

    The trouble is, my ice maker puts out decidedly smaller cubes. Doubt I could even get one to stick between the points.

    They may become rustic decoration for the basement mantel.

    Ice tongs are excellent for handling firewood.
    I have several sizes that I use.

    I imagine they hold wood quite well, but I'm not sure why I'd ever need them for that purpose. Wood is so much less slippery than ice.

    Yep gonna say ice. Use as a decoration. I have. Set of log tongs like used behind a mule for skidding timbers or logs out of the woods. They were used by my grandfather and maybe farther back?
