    Hey there collectors, I picked these vintage looking tongs up yesterday and am not 100% on what they were used for. Closest thing i could find were ice tongs but mine still differs slightly in style compared to any that I could find. Any help would be appreciated! Happy picking

      I have a pair like that. Mine are marked made in Taiwan and Jar cap opener. They do work but not very well.

      this link suggest "lobster/crab tongs" but as an old post the related links are out dated:

      Onedtent that is what ours were made for. Ball canning jars. They worked OK on the quart size jars but tended to slip on other sizes.
