Adding a piece from Smithey Ironware Co.'s collection to your cooking lineup is basically like investing in your own heirloom from American history. Based on US blacksmith design of the 18th and 19th centuries, the Carbon Steel Farmhouse Skillet is as genuine as it gets and, created for lifetimes of use, is as much a piece of art as it is a damn fine cooking tool. In partnership with renowned Charleston blacksmith Robert Thomas Iron Design, the Skillet is hand-forged in limited numbers each with its own unique visual differentiations, along with shared core design features such as the handle inspired by traditional fire tools. It's lightweight, durable, and insanely versatile. Pick one up below.
