This is our top selling Fire Tool. The handle is braided with a soft suede material that feels very comfortable in your hand. Forged from strong solid iron stock, the pike, or business end of the poker is designed to push and pull your logs. The end is drawn and hammered back into itself. This process strengthens the iron. It is then slowly lowered while cherry red hot into a tub of cool water. This process is known as quenching. All of the processes work together to make tools that are of heirloom quality.  

We offer 4 stock sizes in this style but are glad to forge custom lengths to suit our clients needs. Let us know what would make your fire tending a little easier. If you need a hearth side hanger take a look at our Howell Hook.
