“The baymen’s tongs are the most important single piece of equipment that he owns. Tongs...are worked from the edge of the flat-decked clam boat. The handles are two elongated wooden sticks which are held together by a brass nut close to the heads, the toothed portion. They work on the same principle as a pair of scissors...” From “Clamming in the Great South Bay” by Paul Valvo
