Hand forging enables faithful copies of these period peices to be made. They are ideally suited for listed and period properties as well as for the discerning customer looking to create an 'olde world' feeling to their home. Finishes - There are two finishes available:
Bees-Waxed (black ironmongery) - All of the Rustix range is available using the traditional method of applying bees-wax to the fittings which gives a stunning effect of a rich dark brown/black colour tinged here and there with the deep red/ochre colour from the forging process. A regular application of bees-wax should be applied to any fittings which are used externally, or where they may become exposed to the weather such as an open window where stays and fasteners might experience occasional damp conditions. A soft shoe brush is ideal for polishing the fittings.
Patine (pewter/gun metal coloured ironmongery) - The majority of the range is now available in this anti-corrosion pewter colour. The finish gives a superb old iron colour and is suitable for external uses. The manufacturing and componenting process of some items does not allow the Patine finish to be applied. The Patine has very good anti-corrosion properties and only requires an occasional wipe with a household polish.
NB: Due to the manufacturing nature of some of the fittings in the range, sizes may vary to a small degree.
