I Forge Iron

Dragon Faced Fire Poker


Recommended Posts

Every blacksmith needs a poker with which to tend the fire pot. It can be traditional or unadorned and merely practical. But I wanted one with character. So I forged out of a piece of 3/4 inch square stock a Dragon Headed, modified pineapple twist handled poker. It does the trick.

One of the posts I received on the Blacksmith for Beginners Facebook page was that my "modified pineapple twist" was actually a "thorn twist".  I had not heard the term before but it seem appropriate. It is just a pineapple twist without scoring any lines with a chisel or hot cut.
