Personalized Steak Branding IronYou can give visitors a meal they'll never forget by stamping your own "brand" onto their steak before serving it up.
The hand-forged iron can be personalized with one, two or three initials or you use any kind of symbol. Alexander Albrecht, the inventor and head of Forgemaster, an ornamemtal blacksmith shop in Edmonton, Alta., Canada, says that for ranchers who already have their own brand he'll make an identical miniature copy of the full-size brand.
"It's real blacksmith quality, hand-forged steel. A high-quality product. You just put the iron on the coals, gas range or electric burner. Just before serving the steak, ham-burger or other kind of meat, you urea sideto-side rocking motion to brand the meat. Letters are 1 in. high and the handle is about 18 in. long and finished in black enamel. You have to use a hot pad or glove to handle it," says Albrecht, noting that the personalized iron can also be used on wood.
An iron with one or two initials sells for $19.99. Three initials sell for $24.99 (includes postage).
