Stock Lock and Hand Forged Key by George Forge

This simple lock has a wooden body into which all of the iron parts are mounted. The example we used for this lock was roughly constructed, and clearly not intended as an esthetic statement.


The bit of the key is brazed into a slot cut into the end of the shaft.
