Ancient and Elegant eating utensils

In ancient times people in Arctic areas used these kind of tongs for eating hot foods. Beautiful Northern birch is delicate looking but very durable! These would be great serving utensils also.

These are made by Mauri Poylio, 100 miles north from the Arctic Circle in Finnish Lapland. True Lapland craft, "duodji".
