It's getting to be that time of year! What time is that you ask? Bonfire time!! It happens a little earlier down south, a little later up north. And then it reverses in the fall. Add that to our list of "odd facts we notice through online sales."
This fall we added to our custom fireplace tool offerings, expanding from our original monogram bonfire poker. You can now find both indoor and outdoor pokers as well as tongs in our all-metal Etsy shop, Lucia Metal Studios. Just want one of the tools? No problem! You'll find each tool listed individually as well as in a set.
The outdoor poker is 40" long and the tongs are 36" long. This set is designed to be used comfortably with an outdoor fire, usually a little bigger and hotter than an indoor fire.
Both pieces of the indoor set are 27" long. Modern indoor fireplaces tend to be fairly small and shallow. A smaller tool set fits the bill in this case.
A few detail and sample shots of the fireplace tools. We make our fireplace tools from hammered square bar with a looped handle for your initial. The end of the poker is traditionally forged-welded and includes a log hook
We also currently have two forged fireplace screens available in this Etsy shop. They're in a free-standing style that will fit most fireplaces. They feature a riveted design with hammer textured edging. Handles at the top make them a breeze to move, while bracketed feet lend them stability.
Stop by the Handforged Fire Tools section of Lucia Metal Studios to see the entire collection all in one place!
