Dartington Steel Thumb latch Rustix collection
There are two finishes available in the Rustix range – please see description for the available finishes and price difference.
Beeswax is a traditional finish which protects the metal. The beeswax is applied while the metal is hot from the forge and the colours vary from dark brown grey to black. This finish is best for internal use.
Patine – This has a pewter patine (old iron colour Dull Pewter Grey) and has anti corrosive properties which makes it ideal for external use. Please allow 6 weeks for these as they are hand made to order.
