The commonly misused term “wrought iron” is no longer produced on a commercial scale. True wrought iron is a semi-
fused mass of smelted iron created by heating ore in a forge with charcoal, which serves both expels most of the slag
and weld the iron into a solid mass. In the 1860’s wrought iron was replaced by mild steel since it was less expensive
and more readily available. Most products described as ‘wrought iron’ in mild steel is formed.  Steel can be mixed with
misused for iron that is worked, due to the origin of the Middle English word “wroght” known today as “wrought” is a
methathetic variant of worht, a past  participle of worchen meaning to work. In other words, the term wrought (worked)
was describing how the iron was processed not describing what happens to the iron after it was formed.

Teton Iron is a family owned and operated blacksmith shop located on our small ranch (Buffalo Bluff Ranch) in the
Teton Valley. Our goal is to supply a product line of hard to find iron products, such as; pizza doors, wood
connectors, corbels, square head lag screws and bolts and many more products with the craftsmanship and style of
century. It is intriguing to delve into the history of how these designs evolved into either very simple and functioning
designs or very our elaborate and decorative design. Click on "
Shop by Design" on the left navigational bar to
explore all options in each design. Click on below images to enter page.
Our vast selection of iron fasteners include hammered square head lag screws and bolts, hammered hex lag screws
and bolts, round head lag screws and bolts, pyramid square head lag screws and bolts, distressed flat head and
washers we offer USS flat washers, rub washers,(for your square head bolts), square plate washers, round plate
washers, fender washers, and a large variety of designs in our decorative washers.
Our speakeasy grills feature hammered lapped joints like found in traditional blacksmithing. This is where two pieces
of iron are heated in a forge until red hot, then hammered together to create a lap joint which is where a rivet is
hammered in to adhere the joint. We are creating new products daily and we have just released two new speakeasy
doors. We are also introducing many new authentic old world door knockers, door straps, and ring pull handles.
Don't forget the cane bolts for the top and bottom of your door and keep in mind that they can be turned sideways to
be used as a slide bolts. Some of our most unique rustic hardware are the faux and functioning hinge designs, clavos
(decorative nails), iron "T" straps, "L" Straps, corner straps, door handles, and cabinet knobs and handles.
