Im am looking for some long forceps, my LFS has some that are like 18 inches and are life savers. I have found some that are 10-12 inches on Dr. Fosters for around 10 dollars just wanted to see if anyone knew of any others that were longer.

I picked up a pair of surgical type forceps that are 24" long off of eBay. I would do a search there. These things are fantastic

I would bet the forceps your LFS has are actually surgical forceps. Come to think of it, they may all be LOL. I am not sure they really make "commercial grade" forceps anyway. In any case, as cakeman said, there are definitely surgical grade forceps that would be plenty long enough for what you are asking.

I am going to order one of these...we use them at the LFS I work at and they work great... do some further searching and there are different lengths and some, if not all, have a locking feature also...

I recently got 24" steel "feeding tongs" at a herp store. They are like a huge pair of thick steel tweezers. For $20. They rock.

Look up "marlin long". They make scissors and forceps.
