We are very lucky to find the blacksmith who makes these hinges for us. We have spent a lot of tome trying to find an artisan that shared our passion for quality wok and who was also skilled enough in wrought iron work to be able to make them. The old type hinges are hand forged on the anvil in the time honoured way. The hinges will show forging marks. Once finished the hinges are hand cleaned and polished once this stage is complete they are oiled. The oil is a hot black oil which penetrates the surface of the wrought iron. This seal the surface and prevent excessive rusting. The hot oil also make the colour of the hinge more uniform along it’s length.
When you receive your hinges you will also receive all the fixings you need to install them. In this case the fixing will be screws. The screws will be of a cottage design they will be slotted black screws with a domed head.
