A Selection of the Metals Used
Hot forged steel is the main focus of the forge but Verdigris' blacksmith David Hyde also works with a variety of different metals, each with very diverse and unique properties. David particularly like to highlight the contrast between the different metals as a design feature and counterpoint in much of his work. There is however often a degree of confusion within the general public between the various forms of iron and steel. The links below give some useful information about the difference between these metals and the properties of other metals used.
