Springs or pliers similar to those of the fireplace, of various sizes and shapes. They are used to model hot glass.

There are borsèle of different shapes depending on the work to be carried out, there are smooth bags, flat and wide, without any modeling, those in a herringbone pattern to mark a decoration, those “coppo” (in the shape of a tile), those for sawing, or those “da pissegar" (to pinch) and others sometimes made on commission by the masters themselves.
They are also called pucellas, or jacks.
