The tweezers are made of bronze.

Tweezers were often part of the toilet equipment on women's dresses during the Viking Age, alongside the nail cleaner and ear cleaner, and are therefore found in many different forms in Viking settlement areas.

Since the Bronze Age, bronze tweezers have been used for personal hygiene by our ancestors. Egyptian and Roman tweezers were even part of medical instruments and so tweezers were still essential for hygiene and beauty care and an essential part of women's dress.
