Abstract (en)

The invention relates to tweezers made of light weight metal (10) and having two pincers (12, 14) each of which forms a head part (13) on one of their ends and can be reversibly and temporarily brought together on their other end by manually applying a closing pressure; the tweezers (10) preferably consist of extruded light weight metal and are embodied as a single piece. A closed novel extrusion profile (60) with an approximately tweezers-shaped cross-section is preferably used in the production of said tweezers.
