"From The Anvil" beeswax finish is the most authentic finish for steel. After forging, the col"From The Anvil"s left in the steel range from blue to deep red ochre. To preserve these beautiful col"From The Anvil"s, "From The Anvil" beeswax products are dipped into hot beeswax. This gives a subtle, matt richness to the metal and offers excellent protection when the products are fitted internally and properly maintained. An extremely natural finish and a far softer alternative to a black powder coated finish.
