Include myself as well JJ. Even though still stuck in Ft. Lauderdale, I do get to forge a little when I’m home sometimes to Atlanta. Tried to send email also.

For all forging partners.......if you don’t have a pair of these, get them!

I waited too long until I saw JJ was offering again and I jumped on it. 

Got them in time for a 4 day weekend and had a great time catching up on work waiting for me. (living in Ft.. Lauderdale, Fl I don’t have access to my forge)

I will order another set for hidden tang gripping.

superb stuff!!!!!

I second that. I've been struggling with a meager tong selection for years. I used my new JJ Simon tongs this last weekend and enjoyed them very much. Excellent for flat bar holding, but for me, when I get to finishing a Japanese style blade, they also hold the finished shape and allow for choking up on the blade. Not something a bolt or flat tong does.

thanks again, JJ
