These ice tongs are another iconic design by Ricard. They work great and they can't be simpler...

I'm not sure I'll know how to explain the way they work... so I've made the simplest drawing so you can see how it works! (plus, it's past midnight... my mind is not in conditions for a second language task LOL)

I know some of you are thinking "did this Mr Ricard designed anyting related to drinking and smoking?" O yes, he did, in fact I have run out of items from his alcohol and tobacco section...

    ahammmm... I just realized I was so tied last night I didn't upload the last image in which I explain how these ice tongs work... anyway, here it is now. (I just finished it on Photoshop and forgot to upload it LOL)

    Thanks Bellin for such an enthusiatic response LOL

    Well, they really are nice... that's why I've got four of five available colours (miss the green ones in my collection)

    They've been reissued too... I'll think of you if ever see them again!
