Legacy Fire Poker
This new fire poker brings together beauty and durability in it's design.
These Fire Pokers are made of sturdy 1/2" round stock and are 30" long-- making them thicker than our Leaf Wrap Fire Poker and slightly shorter than our beloved Heritage Fire Poker. The opposite end of this fire tool has both a poker and a harpoon 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.
Item arrived slightly bent and I believe the leaf on the handle should be more curved to the shaft which would give you a better grip to hold with comfort
Bought this poker and the next day got an offer to buy it for a lower price from Etsy. Asked seller to refund difference and was told they didn't know anything about it and that it must have come from Etsy, not them. Quality of the poker is good but left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing. I should have put it in my cart and waited for discount offer in the coming days. Live and learn.
