Same thing happened to me when I was using a certain brand of coals. The last time I crushed one of those coals by accident, a flaming granule landed on my face, a few millimetres from my left eyeball.

Once I switched to a better brand, this problem stopped occurring. Blame the coals, not the tongs! The fact that the bird tongs have such a tight grip makes me feel secure about moving coals around without accidentally dropping them.

They look pretty kick ass, too.
