Announcement    THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT OUR HAND FORGED PRODUCTS. PLEASE READ THIS!
-----------------
We are a professional blacksmith team making quality, hand forged, American made products... old world style...and we love what we do! We are known for our quick communication, fast shipping and only the highest quality products. Please let us know if you did not receive that, and we will do all that we reasonably can to fix it! We really do care about your experience with us and the quality of our products, not just your review. YOU are the reason we get to do what we love every day!

Please be aware:

Coloration and brightness of brass brushed items can vary based on many factors that we do not control.

Scaling is also a natural part of the process of forging and can look like metal pieces flaked off. The pattern this forms, is part of what makes every piece a beautiful, unique, one-of-a-kind, work of art.

Every railroad spike has a Manufacturer's "Mark of Authenticity" on the spike head. This will have a letter V followed by a number with more numbers underneath that. This tells us when, where, and by what machine the spike was made. THIS IS NOT personalized stamping that we did. If you order a spike item and don't get the head personalized, the Maker's Mark of authenticity will appear there.

Please note that the process of oxidation that occurs when the heated steel is exposed to the air, can cause the steel to take on colors such as red, blue, brown or green.

Our finishes are intended for indoor use, including our cabinet and door hardware and the dinner triangle. They do not have a rustproof coating. Exposure to a lot of moisture, humid conditions, and salt water environments may cause rust. (Bathrooms are fine as long as it isn't a beach house with salty conditions) If rust begins to form, rub it down asap with paste wax and it will right back to beautiful. If you wish to have them outdoors, please consider a rustproof coating first.

Call 828 848 8884 if you have any questions or need assistance, we are happy to help anyway we can.

Thank you for visiting us, we hope you have a wonderful day!
