This old Blacksmith forged rake I found on a Museum site is a “Blacksmith's rake Iron fork with bent prongs; said to used for raking coals out of fire.” It has multiple uses as different dealers list it as a Clam Rake or for Garden use. It measures approx. 15 ½ inches long. The 4 prong area is over 2 ½ inches across. The handle material is approx. 3/8 of a inch thick. The end rake area is just over ¼ of a inch thick. I purchased this with antique cast iron skillets and pots from the early turn from the 19th Century. It is well used with rust, wear and black paint loss. I have 2 while the price is for one. The pictures show both of them. There are some differences while they are made similar.
