Our hardware is crafted in four finishes
Forge Finish -
Each piece is carefully wrought in the forge, then gently
buffed to enhance the natural texture of the metal. A clear
matte lacquer is applied to allow the subtle characteristics
to show through. Although this is our most popular finish,
it is suited for interior use only.
Painted Finish - This traditional finish has
three layers of finish to give durability to heavily
used or exterior hardware. Each piece is acid bathed
to ensure a proper bond of the primer, then two layers
of flat black lacquer are applied.
Textured Finish - A heavy texture finish accentuates
the hand hammered surface and beveled edges. There
is NO machine hammering used.
Oil Finish -
A special formula of black pigmented oil is burned into
the iron at the time of forging. This is a favorite finish,
but a time consuming process.
