The foundry consists of artisan founders who are passionate about their work. As important as this is they also have the skill to produce these items for us. The share our ethos for top quality cast iron products
Once the handles have been cast they are hand cleaned and then hand polished. The handles are now dressed with hot black oil. This is a very old way to treat cast iron. The hot oil protects the iron in two ways. Firstly the oil seeps into the tiny pores on the surface of the casting and by doing so creates a film over the surface of the handle. This coating provides an airtight seal over the iron and thus protects it from rusting. The oil also gives the iron a uniform black colour.
When you receive your purchase we will include all the fixing screws you will need to fit the handle.
