Inspired by the graceful shape of a whale's tail, these tongs are great for serving salads and other foods, and have a patented magnetic hinge, making them easy to use, clean, and store. Hand-wash only. As simple as it gets - use them as a pair of serving tongs or as a salad set. David Mayhew found the shape in a whale's tail disappearing into the depths, and donates a part of the profit to the Save the Whales foundation. The handcrafted wooden tongs in jamjuree wood are suited to serving salads and other foods, and won the Tasmanian Design Award 2006. Whale Tongs are made with a magnetic hinge that makes them easy to separate for cleaning. Hand-wash only.
