I thought up this idea one evening while I was enjoying roasting marshmallows and hotdogs over a campfire with my family. The roasting skewers I had were very short, and it made roasting the marshmallows uncomfortable as I would have to kneel in very close to the fire. I began to wish I had something that I could use to rest a longer skewer in so I could sit comfortably away from the fire and still be able to easily maneuver a longer roasting skewer over the fire.
So was the Hand Forged Fire Pit Skewer Rest born! This Skewer rest (AKA The Campfire Helper) is made from recycled steel, hand forged by me in my smithy to create a useful and attractive tool for the outdoors. I first forge a nice wide hook where the skewer will rest, then forge the opposite end to a dull point so that it can be easily driven into the ground by hand or with a few light taps of a hammer. To finish off the look I add a long tight twist down the middle.
Never find yourself having to get too close to the campfire again! sit back and relax in your fire side chair and let the Skewer Rest do all the hard work. Use two of these together and make yourself a quick and easy campfire spit!
Finished with a beeswax coating to help prevent rusting, these Skewer Rests measure approx. 26" tall (approx. 2 feet tall).
These go perfectly with my hand forged campfire roasting forks, designed to be long and keep you safely away from the fire while you are roasting! check them out HERE!
****Note**** these skewer rests are not tall enough to use to hang my campfire forks on, these are intended to rest your fork in while you are roasting. I use my rests to prop my fork up as well when I'm not using the fork, but these aren't tall enough once driven into the ground to hang the fork without the fork touching the ground.
If you like what you see here, but need it in a different size/length etc. specific to your particular application, please feel free to send me a "convo". I would love to make something special for you that fits YOUR design!
Sold individually. Each of these skewer rests are hand made by me in my smithy. While the quality, design and craftsmanship will match what you see here in this listing, your particular item will vary ever so slightly in appearance. That's what makes hand made so much fun!
