The (KM) Khalil Mamoon Hammer Tongs from HookahStore.com are pretty bad ass and hefty!

Are the hammer tongs really all that useful? Ive though about picking some up just because they look pretty awesome but are they worth it?

I have 2 pairs of these
http://www.hookah-shisha.com/p-1082-...kah-tongs.html

The large pair works great, but the small pairs sucks! I got them free from H-S because they forgot to send me some. Other than that I use alligator tongs or whatever comes free with my hookahs that don't suck.

They can be useful if you are outside and need to break some coal. But they are also very hefty. I do like the standard tongs though .. they are the ones I use most often.

I love my KM Hammer tongs. The hammer end does come in handy sometimes when you need to break coals into chunks. They also have nice springy feeling to them and I have not had to open them back up to make the gap bigger like i do with cheaper tongs.

The Syrian bird tongs are the best tongs I've ever used.

I like the bird tongs for a while but they were giving me trouble with a couple different coals shattering under their sprung pressure. Fixed when I switched to better coals. Maybe I'll give them a try now that I am using Exotica coals.

I got these also. Work great and stay clamped on their own but not to tight to break the coal.

I use these GIANT 12inch tongs that look like tweezers. I used to use them to drop food (mice) into the python cage. No more snakes in the house, so I washed it up and use it for the hookah. They are super good quality, surgical steel in fact, and they don't feel clumsy at all. It's strange how I miss using them when I'm over at friends house. They were like $10.

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.
