Customer Note:

Elegant poker with hook on a stand - the simple fireplace tool solution.  A single functional tool for limited space with minamalist style.

If you only want or need one fireplace tool, this is a good solution.  The poker with a hook can both push and pull your logs into place, and when not in use can hang on the beautifully proportioned stand.  With a hand-cut circular base, the stand is sturdy with the poker held firmly in place and neatly balanced over the base. These pokers look great and are a useful fireside / fireplace accessory.  The poker is made a little shorter than our other sets, yet is still long enough to keep your hands away from the heat.  We are offering this set with a choice of 2 handles - our traditionally styled forged basket handle, or a more rustic looking hammered handle.  Both of these handles are easy to hold in the hand, and are beautifully crafted using traditional blacksmithing techniques.  The sets are 100% handmade in the southwest of Western Australia.

  • 1 x fireside poker with hook
  • 1 x stand
  • tool length: 600mm
  • 2 choices of handle style
  • Hand-made from mild steel
  • Polished and varnished
  • Weight: 3kg approx.
  • Shipping size: Large boxed parcel

Functional and beautifully styled, the tools are available in 2 handle options at 2 price points (see photos below);

  1. hammered handles $210.00
  2. forged basket handles $220.00

The stand has a hand-cut base, and the poker has a light hammered texture, each piece is varnished to make the metal shine. These are completely hand-made, no set are absolutely identical and there can be individual differences, though essentially will be very similar to these pictured.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

How long before the product I like can be shipped?

We keep most of the more popular items we make in stock. If an item is in stock, it may be able to be sent on the day we receive your order, or depending on time of day and any customising, it may be sent on the following day. If you are running short on time, you could call or email us to check what we have available to ship immediately, or ask how long before the item can be made and ready for shipping.

Some of the items that we don't hold in stock are the Jewellery Boxes or Fireside Tools, because these have many options and variables, eg. colour of fabric lining, style of handles and type of tools. Our iron rings also need to be made to size, but as these are quick to make, they may only take an extra day or so.

Caring for Iron & Steel jewellery

Iron is a base metal and is not as stable as gold, silver or stainless steel. When it comes into contact with oxygen in the air or water, it will try to combine with the oxygen to create an iron oxide. We know this as rust. This is the reason why you seldom see iron in its naked state. Iron is protected in various ways: paints, glazes, varnishes, oils and waxes. Your jewellery piece has had a quality clear varnish applied to help protect it.

Your jewellery loves to be worn often. The oils in your skin help to condition the metal much like when you season a cast iron skillet (typically rinse, dry and apply an oil then heat it briefly - no soap as that is corrosive). Your iron jewellery can be treated similarly. Keep it dry and rub a little oil occasionally if it was exposed to water.

If it does get wet with substances like soaps & detergents, chlorine or salt water, rinse it with clean water and dry thoroughly using a hair dryer or leave it in the sun briefly. Apply some oil, you can use coconut oil, olive oil, or any other oil safe for cooking. Rub it on and buff it off.

Some people like to hang and display their jewellery. That would be great...as long as you aren't doing so in a steamy bathroom. Water and humidity are its foes.
