Looks Hand Forged
Our home is a quality, up-scale home that exhibits a grand fireplace. I was looking for a fireplace set that would look expensive - like a hand forged set that would match the beautiful fireplace. A cheap set from a box store was just not going to look appropriate. I am very pleased with this set - it has the look of a hand forged tool set. I was very surprised at how sturdy this set came right out of the box. I was expecting to have to do some welding to the base to give it more strength, but the way this set is designed, it is very sturdy. Again, I was skeptical of the quality because it is made in China, but this set doesn't look cheap in any way. The tools themselves are also very sturdy and manufactured with nice details. If your brush head appears a little loose, it is easy enough to tighten by hand. The shovel is solid and sturdy. The poker is doing a fine job. My favorite tool is the nicely made tongs. They really are useful at picking up small logs and moving them around. This tool is worth the money that I paid for the whole set. You will really appreciate this one tool. The base seemed to be a little crooked out of the box, but the feet can be adjusted pretty easily and it straightens right up. Overall, this set looks just right in our home. If you are looking for a set that looks up-scale, this is the set to purchase. I highly recommend this fireplace set.
