    How can I find a replacement salad tong?

    I broke my wife's favorite salad tong. She's not happy. It's wood and has a unique shape. There isn't any brand on it. Is there a way to find a replacement?

    Find a craftsman to copy it, but hurry, the holiday rush is coming!  smile

      I agree. On TV's "Pawn Stars" in Las Vegas are some experts that can copy anything. Maybe call up the show producers and ask about the crasftsmen they use.

    Perhaps share a pic of the good half and someone can identify the brand or where you can find it?

    I don't know about replacements, but something similar happened to a friend of mine. He fractured his mom's antique salad tong and she also had an antique wooden serving bowl that was broken. He took these to the wood shop class at the local adult trade school and found a student interested in making a little money. My friend said the student repaired both, doing such a good job he paid him twice what he had originally offered. If you cannot find a replacement for your wife's tong, perhaps you can find help at your nearest trade school, too.Good luck!

    Paul, use what's left of the wooden tong and start paddling, because you're up sh!t's creek, my friend.

    You could try to use Sugru to fix it. It is food-safe. It might be hard to try to mix the different colors to get a good match for the original wood, though.

    See if you can find it on

    I actually found exact replacements for broken dishes so I was able to make it a complete set again.

    Maybe they might have your salad tong. I did see some there, but not of wood. However, you can enter a request for them to find the exact match for you.

    Make her one. Since it's only a spoon (and not a dresser or something lol) a try could be worth it. The effort will be appreciated, I am sure.

    Good luck!
