Flat-tip tweezers, ideal for removing small fish bones

Tweezers are tools used for picking up objects too small to be easily handled with the human hands. They are probably derived from tongs, pincers, or scissors-like pliers used to grab or hold hot objects since the dawn of recorded history. In a scientific or medical context they are normally referred to as forceps.

Culinary use

Not usually used in a kitchen, small tweezers, which can be purchased from a chemist, are an ideal tool for removing remove pin-bones from salmon and other fish.
