Engelbrecht's forged steel fire and ash rake is entirely crafted here in the USA, and truly hand made. Except for the steel foundry making the steel rod, not a single piece of automated equipment was used forming these tools. Styled after an old blacksmith hearth tool, this is the perfect tool for moving logs or burning coals as well as raking ash into the ash container. The rake handle is made from 3/8" steel rod formed with a hammer and anvil. An excellent addition to your bbq pit, grill or fireplace and will give you years of use.
