These fire forks are made to work. Long enough to hold a hotdog out over the fire and strong enough to flip steaks or half a chicken. Hand forged as always in our blacksmith shop right here in the green mountains of Vermont. Heated in a coal fired forge and hammered to shape on and antique anvil. No welding or power tools are used in making these just traditional methods. A campsite is not complete without a roasting fork and this one is available in three lengths.....24" as pictured, 30 and 36" Finished with vegetable oil for a dark gray non toxic finish.
