I was searching for a fire poker for my husband for Christmas but wanted one well made and made in America. Searching on line I found Ponderosa Forge and found the railroad spike fire poker! I watched the video of how they are made and decided to order. My husband loves it!!! We are very pleased with the quality workmanship of this product and highly recommend this company! Thank you so much!
