Notes

Abstract:
The fold-hinge tweezers are inscribed with five lines on each leg parallel to the hinge and running to the jaws. The shape describes a triangle, with the hinge at the top and the pointed jaws below. Jaws have no teeth and are straight. One jaw is broken off and worn. A hole pierces through the broad area below the hinge and above the first inscribed line. The grip is stiff and sufficient to grasp an object firmly.
