The Talon Tongs are designed to look like its namesake. Each end is shaped like a tiny birds claw, prepared to eagerly grasp the cubes just out of reach. If you don't agree with us now, wait until you've had a few. The silver-plated tongs are ideal for gripping your average 1.25 inch cube, but can handle loads slightly larger if you ask it nicely. The claws grip the ice until you're ready to plunk it into your drink, eliminating the dreaded Hairy Cube dilemma you put yourself in whenever you've dropped the last one on the floor.
