Hand forged BBQ fork. The shaft is made from 3/8 square steel for strength and durability. It is then hand twisted into a reverse twist for a unique and beautiful design. The tines are forged to length using a hammer and anvil. All of the metal surfaces are coated with bee’s wax while hot to give then a protective coating and a pleasing appearance. The spring handle is welded to the shaft and there will be some discoloration of the handle at the weld point. It is highly recommended that all metal surfaces receive a coat of food grade oil after using to prevent rust. Items are handmade and will vary from item to item.
