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.
We built a house in 2019 and our new (then) property was covered in rocks of all sizes. We found the perfect rock for the back of a fire pit, and commenced building. Fast forward a few years and the fire pit is complete, now we need the perfect tools. This is where Wicks comes to the rescue. We are proud Mainers and were thrilled when we found the perfect fire place tongs and poker made locally. We both said "sold" order them, and we are not disappointed. The quality of workmanship is unfounded now, these will be passed down generation to generation, once we are done of course. The style fits the fire pit perfectly, and they were ready to use right out the box. Speaking of box, shipping was quick. I highly recommend these and will most likely buy more from Wicks in the future.
I would have loved to upload a photo, check Google reviews.
Beautiful craftsmanship and they work great!
I ordered these for a gift for my husband's birthday. He LOVED them. The tongs and poker were perfect to use in our outside fire pit. Will definitely recommend to others.
