Individual hand forging results in unique pieces, no two are absolutely alike, and adds to the dramatic effect.
Rust- Raw iron that has been oxidized. This finish will continue to rust over time and will rub off. This finish can be preserved by sealing with furniture wax or a clear coat sealant.
Oil Blackened- Raw iron coated with oil. The oil will wear and expose the iron beneath which will rust. Left as is, this finish will erode, or rub off. This can be prevented by sealing with furniture wax or a clear coat sealant.
Black Powder Coat- A baked-on finish that is virtually maintenance free. This finish is more shiny than Oil Blackened and is permanent.
This item is handmade. As a result some variations in the size, boring, and shape should be expected. However, all efforts are made by the craftsman to keep the pieces as consistent as possible.
