Gilded Damascus Serving Tongs

When Master Bladesmith David Lisch crafts a set of humble serving tongs, he forges them from house-made damascus, outfits them with copper & bronze finger platforms, and dips them in melted gold, of course. Ideal for a charcuterie board or hors d'oeuvre spread, this ethereal, one-of-a-kind serving tool is crafted by hand at David's Washington studio, easily competing with even the tastiest edible morsel for most appealing object in the dining room.
