Making our handles
All of our handles in this range are hand forged. By hand forged we mean that they are made in the traditional way. The handles are hand forged on the anvil. The finished handle will show these forging marks. We have found a small blacksmiths shop who make these for us. The blacksmiths are highly skilled artisan with many years of experience in forging. The blacksmiths are also passionate about their work which will show in the quality of the completed handle.
Once the handles have been forged the wrought iron now needs to be dressed. To do this the handles are dipped into natural beeswax. The beeswax does two things to the handle. Firstly the wax will penetrate the tiny holes on the surface of the wrought iron. This will enable the wax to form a layer over the entire surface of the iron. This coating will form a barrier between the iron and the air. This will help to prevent excessive rusting. The next function that the wax provides is that it will even out the colour of the handle.
Fixing screws will be included in with your order. Thank you.
