Stando's smaller sibling - Petite Stando. Light and quick, Petite Stando is the answer to the offset plating tweezer. At 8 inches it's comfortable nestled on the front of your apron, and ready to help plate on the pass. You'll find sharpened tips and a balanced tension between the tongs, allowing for precise placement and a strong grip.
The Stando project is the result of an interest in updating the ubiquitous kitchen tongs — which often tears or breaks food and feels like cooking with two clumsy thumbs. Gestura calibrated Stando to feel like a delicate extension of one’s fingers.
They ditched the bland and clinical look of tongs, and replaced it with a soft streamlined shape.
The namesake feature, a curved stand in the middle of the tool provides a wide surface area for finger placement and grip. The stand also keeps the tips elevated off the ground while not in use.
Each piece is stamped, etched, and finished by hand at Mr. Ando’s workshop.

Hand-wash only, please.
Petite Stando's tips is sharp out of the box. If you would like them less sharp, a few passes on medium-grit sandpaper or something similar will do the trick.
