Fire Tongs Re-Imagined

Surgical-Control Fire Tongs for Logs and Coals

"I designed Apocalypse Tongs because traditional coal and log tongs never gave me adequate control over the campfire, fire pit, chiminea, fire place and charcoal grill--and especially for Dutch oven cooking, where temperature and heat control are so important to success.

Most other charcoal and firewood tongs require two hands to operate and offer little control when you're trying to turn a log to a specific rotation and angle. They have moving parts, including rust-susceptible bolts or rivets.

Apocalypse Tongs are of single-piece construction, made from rust resistant galvanized steel. I've been using the same pair for more than a decade. They stay outdoors 100 percent of the time, and to this day, they don't have a spot of rust.

If you've tried other fire tongs for logs and coals--or you're still fumbling around with pokers--Apocalypse Tongs will open up a whole new world of control. You'll stay warmer, food cooked outdoors will taste better, and you'll generally have more fun playing with fire."

"Easy-to-use fire tongs"

"Excellent  design, this are the most comfortable and easy to use fire tongs. They  are light but at the same time help you manage good size fire woods, one  hand operation is a big plus. I will recommend them."

--Andres G.

"Best fire / camping tool we own"

"Best  things since fire.  We are avid outdoors people.  I have purchased  multiples of these tongs.  One for house, one for camper, etc.  We do  all our cooking while camping with the dutch oven.  To have one tool  that can lift the lid, lift the oven, move big logs to individual coals,  move the cooking racks, and steal the hat off of your unaware 9 year  old.  And do it all securely.  Since owning them everyone that sees them  in use is sold, hence me now buying more sets as gifts."

--Adam D.

"True testimonial:"

(Our favorite review, so far)

"My tongs helped me grill the best steak I ever ate in my life, protected  my house from zombie home invasion, and allowed me to excavate a  meteorite that landed next to my grill. Awesome tool!"
