Sea Serpent Fire Steel by Brad Emig

This unique Fire Steel was inspired by an original example currently in a private collection.  It is entirely hand forged from a bar of 18th Century Wrought Iron and completely whitesmith finished, in order to capture the creative nuances present in the original.  This process also gives the wrought iron a unique texture and sheen that is recognizable to the material.  To further expand on the creative and decorative appeal, all surfaces were tastefully hand engraved and a brass eye was incorporated into the design.  In order to insure sustainable service, the piece has been carburized and heat treated using 18th Century technology throughout.
