Outdoor cooking enthusiasts and professional chefs love Sea Island Forge products. Chef Cory Bahr of Parish Restaurant in Monroe, LA, says, “Cooking over a live fire is one of the most rewarding experiences I can think of. Steve and Sandy of Sea Island Forge have created one of the finest cooking instruments I’ve ever worked with. The craftsmanship and thoughtfulness of each and every piece is unparalleled”.

Artisan Grill Tools: $550
This robust tool set comes with a Sop Mop, Pigtail, Tongs, and Spatula, each hand-hammered for extra strength, and has ergonomic handles for easy grilling. These artisan tools were hand forged to handle high-temperature cooking over an open flame. The beautiful waxed canvas roll with leather accents and copper rivets is designed to repel moisture and perfectly store your high-quality tools.
“Bought my husband the grill tools for his birthday, and I could tell he couldn't be happier! Quality is unmatched and having the canvas roll to keep everything together is an absolute lifesaver.” - Diana.
These four tools are 20” long, have an oxidized finish, and are dishwasher-safe. You can easily buy each tool separately, but the set saves you $85. The outdoor cooking enthusiast in your life will relish their time cooking over an open flame with this set of Artisan Grill Tools.
Our Cussing Coasters are a great way to introduce a little humor into your fire-side cocktail hour. This is the perfect gift for your favorite SOB who says “HH!” when they see your Sea Island Forge Grilling System or for that host who says “WTF” every time someone puts a glass on their antique dining room table.
The high-quality leather coasters are stamped with your favorite cussing acronyms and come in round or square shapes and color choices of red, orange, or green. This is a great last-minute stocking stuffer for the MF, who likes to laugh.
Artisan-Crafted Roasting Forks & Quiver: $270 - $370
If your family enjoys gathering around an open fire, our Roasting Forks & Quiver set is a must-have. Each fork is uniquely sturdy and lightweight because of its twisted stainless steel construction. Our 29” stainless steel Roasting Forks are individually twisted by one of our metalsmiths, making each a one-of-a-kind. The removable wooden handle is cool to the touch even after extended periods of use. Unlike most roasting forks, these can be easily added to a dishwasher once the handle is removed.
This set includes either four or eight stainless steel Roasting Forks and a gorgeous waxed canvas and leather Quiver that makes for easy storage.
"My go-to gift! These are beautifully made, so much fun to use, and easy to clean." - Elizabeth O.
Interested in giving a gift that gives back?
We donate a portion of the sales of our limited-edition Patriotic Roasting Forks & Quiver to Mission 22, an organization that provides long-term programs for veterans that focus on growth and healing to promote wellness for the whole family. Either set will ship quickly and makes a great last-minute gift.
The ChappyWrap cotton-blend blanket feels plush and soft; it is both wonderfully warm and cozy, making it perfect for every climate. This blanket is sure to become an essential part of everyday life. This high-quality 60”x80” throw is big enough to cover a twin bed, spread on the ground for a picnic, or easily wrap you from head to toe when you curl up around a crackling fire on a chilly evening.
The Kettle-side Blanket is designed to last without pilling or fuzzing and is made of a plush cotton blend that is machine washable and dryable. We have three available designs, Red Plaid, Green Plaid, and Blue Herringbone.
“Super soft and cozy and the perfect size blanket for one or two people or several kids to snuggle on a sofa, on the beach, on a boat, or by a campfire. So happy to discover this. Just perfect.” - Jana
The sister to our beloved Black Banks Oyster Knife, the Sapelo Oyster Shucker is designed to shuck comfortably, efficiently, and with plenty of torque whether you’re left or right-handed. Handmade by the Sea Island Forge metalsmiths, the shuckers have a spoon-shaped blade to easily open the oyster without sacrificing any of the tasty juices.
The versatile Chainmail Shuck Guard works with either hand, is dishwasher safe, and can be used as a sturdy scrubber for cast iron pots and pans.
The inspiration for this shucker is drawn from the shape of the McIntosh oysters found off of Sapelo Island in Georgia’s Sapelo Sound - a place that our founder’s dad, Taylor Schoettle, a naturalist, and author, would visit regularly.
This Hedley & Bennett apron is universally adored by top chefs for a reason. It looks good, is sturdy, and is well-known for its top quality in the culinary industry. It is a perfect last-minute gift for the home chef and grillmaster who wants to look the part.
“It is one thing to hear and talk about ‘industry standard.’ But nothing will make you a believer until you own one. Made with great materials and by some great folks. They take a beating. And look amazing.” - Evaldo
These durable aprons were designed to guard you (and your clothes) from an open flame's scorching heat and smoky fumes. We love the two large lap pockets for keeping the chef’s tools handy and a split pocket at the top for thermometers, pens, or anything else your grillmaster might need on the go. The comfortable neck strap can be adjusted to fit your chef snugly, and the 99% cotton fabric stays durable after repeated washing.
Everyone instantly recognizes the ring of a dinner bell, the sentimental sound signaling that a meal is hot and ready. This hand-forged Housewarming Gift Set comes with a handsome Dinner Bell and Cross. Each Sea Island Forge Dinner Bell is made of cold rolled steel with a beeswax finish. The oil-tanned leather strap allows the Dinner Bell to be hung or held by hand, and the leather loop on the clanger can slide along the bottom of the bell to keep the clanger in place when not in use.
The Dinner Bell comes with a steel Cross, serving as a blessing to all who pass through the doors of your home. It has a rustic matte finish and clear coat seal and includes a square nail for hanging. The Cross design is inspired by Marie Schoettle, founder of Saint Anne’s ministry near Darien, Georgia, and mother of Sea Island Forge founder Steve. This Housewarming Set is a great last-minute gift to remind your loved ones that warmth is more than heat.
