Also known as a Locking Tweezer or Cross Lock Curved Tweezer. Measures 6.25" long with rosewood handholds.
This is one of my favorite tools! On days when my hands are tired or my carpal tunnel is acting up this is my go-to tool. It does all the holding for you so you don't have added strain on your hands.
Just squeeze the sides and the jaws open. Place them around your tesserae and un-squeeze and it holds onto your piece. Then squeeze again to release the tile in it's place.
The thin end is also useful for pushing tiles into place.
