After three years of using old bamboo tongs with rubber tips that eventually came off, I recently purchased a set of Kaiser stainless steel print tongs new from B&H for $20. I've just used them for a session in the darkroom and they're a revelation! Soft high-grade plastic (PTFE?) tips that grip the paper firmly but gently, angled to make it easy to grip the paper while holding the tongs over the side of a tray. A lip that prevents them from falling into the tray. Spring loaded action (press to open, release to close under spring pressure) that holds the paper just right. No more dropping paper when transferring from one tray to another because I'm not holding the tongs shut hard enough. Stainless steel so you can wash them clean at the end of the day. I wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone who is fed up with bamboo tongs!
