Work great but after about 2 weeks the bamboo started turning black. Might have been because I was cleaning them throughly enough but they weren't exactly soaking in chemicals either, so they shouldn't have needed to be taken care of so much. I prefer plastic definitely.

    K.I.S.S. Keep it simple Samigon

    By Digitalrules

    from Seattle

    Comments about Samigon Bamboo Print Tongs (Set of 3) with Rubber Tips:

    Yes, and so they are. Simple, but effective. You'll be glad you have these if you have instead been using your bare fingers to pick up the wet photos soaking in developer, stop and fixer. These last surprisingly long. Always rinse after use and wash with dish soap every once in a while.

      Comments about Samigon Bamboo Print Tongs (Set of 3) with Rubber Tips:

      these are the classic bamboo tongs, with thinner ends so they hold prints well. Some of the newer or off brands have thicker rubber that are more difficult to work with.

          Comments about Samigon Bamboo Print Tongs (Set of 3) with Rubber Tips:

          Not much to say, they are tongs.
          Rubber tips grip paper well, clean up easily and are easily recognized as to which belongs in each chemistry to avoid cross contamination. I'm not sure whether bamboo absorbs chemistry into its grain so if you were to need tongs for other types of chemical processes other than standard B&W processing I would recommend purchasing a separate set or tongs made of another material. If you are only looking to process B&W then I would highly recommend.

          Cheap and great quality. Three colors make it much easier to keep separate in chemical process
