Ash Shovel with Suede Handle Forged to 36"
At some point you have to shovel up all those ashes
That fine powder will build up under your grate until the fire can no longer breathe. This causes inefficient burning and poor heat production. Keeping the area under the grate open shouldn't be a chore. A good shovel makes quick work of a messy job.
Blacksmith Walter Howell makes his own shovel pans from thick durable stock. He hand rivets the corners and connections to the hand forged handles for strength. The angle is designed to slide under the grate with ease. Add a Hearth Broom to your tools to finish the job after you shovel out the loose ash and embers.
Well Made with thoughtful design
This handle has a traditional twist in the barrel and a comfort grip that features a soft brown suede braid. A good tool will feel good in your hand. This 36 inch shovel is a good size for most indoor hearths and medium size fire pits.
They are meant to be the last tools you ever have to buy.
With a little maintenance they should serve their function for generations
Care for your ironwork by polishing as needed with a bees wax based furniture polish. Monthly during light use. Wipe your tools down whenever they are exposed to higher than normal humidity. Lehman Brothers Catalog has a wonderful spray bees wax that is perfect for maintaining and conditioning iron and wood.
*Hand forged by artist black smith Walter Howell at Walter Forge. Crafted by skilled hands with pride of workmanship. Made in USA.
