This pair of tongs is completely plain, with slightly angled edges. This is a very common style for the Batemans. What makes them interesting is that they are just 4 inches long, but they are still in perfect proportion so they appear exactly like a normal pair of tongs until you actually see them. The 1. inches size reduction is very noticeable! These tongs are all in one piece with no breaks where they may have been shortened.
