The blade is cut from flat sheet metal and hand riveted to the shaft using 3 rivets so that you never have to worry about the blade coming loose. All of the metal surfaces are coated with bee’s wax while hot to give then a protective coating and a pleasing appearance. The handle is shaped into a stylish hook using a hammer and anvil. 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.
