These eye-catching drop bolts really make a statement
Our brief for these drop bolts was to design something that looked both rustic and modern at the same time, and that also offered good ergonomics. Our client loves the funky look, but also really enjoys using the bolts as they fit so well in one's hand.
This pair of drop bolts, mounted on a pair of rustic timber gates was produced using entirely traditional blacksmithing techniques, although the shape of the handles is clearly very far from traditional. While the shape itself is not difficult to create, the real art comes not only in producing another one exactly the same, but another one exactly the same - in mirror image! As you can see, the member of our blacksmithing team who made these drop bolts rose to this challenge with ease.
