The blacksmiths at Stone County Ironworks produce each product by hand, here in the USA, so each finished item is always a unique piece.
The smallest details can sometimes reveal the larger stories about a company. For instance the fact that Stone County Ironworks refuse to weld imported stamped leafs onto their products and that instead, they heat, hammer, hand-vein and cup the end of a bar of iron by hand to make one, small leaf. This embodies the true art of the blacksmithing. Forging a leaf is an old, traditional blacksmith technique and represents the skill of an experienced blacksmith. Each hand forged leaf is different from the next, as it is in nature and just as it should be. These differences are the signatures of individual blacksmiths. There are easier ways to make a leaf, or any of their designs, but hand forging is the authentic way, and it is the only way for the specialists at Stone County Ironworks.

*********************History of the Leaf
Sometimes the smallest detail can reveal the most about a company.
Stone County Ironworks refuses to simply weld an imported, stamped leaf onto their products. Instead, the end of an iron bar is drawn, hammered, hand-veined and then cupped by hand to make one, small leaf. This is the art of the blacksmith. A forged leaf is an old, traditional blacksmith technique and one that exemplifies the skill of a seasoned blacksmith. Because of this, they have made it their signature.
Each leaf is different from the next leaf, as it is in nature and just as they believe it should be. These differences are the signatures of Stone County’s individual blacksmiths. We are guaranteed in life that each of us is different, unique and unlike any other. It is their guarantee that their products are forged by hand, one at a time, embodying this belief.
There are easier ways to make a leaf, or any of their designs. But the way they do it is the authentic way, and it is the only way for them.
