Subject:Chinese hairpin?
Posted By: Imo Tue, May 31, 2022 IP:

I appreciate your knowledge which you’re going to assist me to understand as this piece which I recently acquired thinking to be Chinese hairpin. Thanking in advance whatever information you’re going to provide as this really a Chinese hairpin or some sort of tweezers. There is a stamp/mark assuming it’s Chinese!

You definitely have locking tweezers. I have one that holds different size tubing for jewelry cutting and thread tapping. The stamp looks to be in an Arabic script. Others will need to comment on the translation.
