Wendell August is America’s oldest and largest forge, manufacturing hand-made metal ware and gift ware with aluminum since 1923. An active member of the coal industry, Wendell August decided to start the gift company at the age of 38 in Brockway, Pennsylvania. August partnered up with Ottone Pisoni, a blacksmith in the same coal mine, after he was so impressed with Pisoni’s work of hand-forged latches for his home.
August was so inspired by the low cost and high quality of Pisoni’s work that he started an ironware business. Pisoni and August handcrafted their first product line to include fireplace andirons, candlesticks, lighting standards, doorknockers, latches, railing and grilles for windows and doors.
Today, Wendell August still uses their original painstaking, eight-step process to manufacture each heirloom in aluminum. The eight steps include die engraving, material selection and cutting, repousse, surface anvil-ing, edging, carbon coloring, a three stage polishing process and forming.
