A historic metal and the traditional material of the Blacksmith. It’s a tough ductile and fibrous material, which is more malleable and resistant to corrosion than modern steel. Today, wrought iron is mainly used in restoration and special projects where like for like materials are required and its high cost is warranted. Wrought Iron comes in several varieties, namely charcoal and puddled iron which take their names from their production methods. Wrought iron is now only available in the recycled format, and it has become a finite resource. We would recommend it is only used for heritage restoration work due to its limited quantity and availability.
