Wrought Iron

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I'm pretty sure this is wrought iron, but I thought I should ask for your opinions too. 

First, it came off old wagon (I think) wheels that my parents found mostly buried out behind the shop. So then I did a break test:

The grain seems right to me, but I've never had wrought before so I'm not super sure. 

 

Thanks guys!

If you plan on working with it, remember, WI likes to be forged HOT...bright yellow or above.  Depending on the quality of the WI, it tends to splinter if worked cooler.  Refined (or fine grained) WI tends to behave better.
