34" Heritage Fire Poker
If you've been searching for the perfect, durable fire poker to compliment your Wicks Forge Fireplace Tongs, then today is your lucky day.
These Fire Pokers are 34" long and have the same traditional hand-forged curl detailing the handle as our Fireplace Tongs. The opposite end has both a poker and a hook to help you stoke any fire.
Each Fire Poker is hand-crafted in Maine using a combination of traditional and modern blacksmith tools and techniques.
We have many fire tools of different lengths and styles available, so please have a look at our other listings to see more options.
Care and use
About the finish
These fire tools are finished in a traditional blacksmith style known as "brushed and waxed." They are first wire brushed to remove forge scale (a thin layer of material that forms on the steel during the forging process), and then sealed with a natural wax finish. This method highlights the natural beauty of the steel surface only achieved through the forging process.
The wax finish is not a paint and should not be exposed to prolonged moisture. If you wish you store your fire tools outdoors, we recommend spraying the piece with a high heat paint such as Rust-Oleum® High Heat Spray Paint obtainable at your local hardware store. This will prevent rust over time (the pieces will still function fine when rusty if you prefer a weathered look). This spray paint can be applied directly to the piece.
Removing rust and resealing the tools
The surface of steel can tarnish or rust over time depending on humidity levels and exposure to moisture. The tools will still function with this surface rust. If you wish to preserve the original look of the piece, surface rust can be removed with a brillow pad, wire brush, or steel scouring pad. Once removed, reseal the piece by rubbing a thin layer of any household oil such as vegetable oil over the newly cleaned surface.
Bought this for our camping trips, can't wait to use it.
I was so excited to see the fire poker and was not disappointed. It is a quality item and for a very reasonable price. It was shipped quickly. I will be ordering from this seller again 🙂
I purchased this fire poker for my brother in law.
He was extremely happy with it and said
“ It should last me a lifetime”
I will recommend Wicks Forge to all of my friends & relatives. Great workmanship!
I really like the length of the poker and the top is a nice decoratory design but it’s not that comfortable. Would be nice if there was a round or oval shaped solid handle of sorts to give you a better grip on it. But overall love it and the skewers I got as well. Nice work !
Loved them, nice workmanship.
Looks like a great piece! Will get lots of use indoors and out.
