All of the rust was removed and a burnt oil finish was applied. This is a traditional finish that has been used throughout history. A mixture of linseed oil and beeswax is applied when the metal is hot. This process is similar to that used to season cast iron cookware. The wax makes a long lasting, durable finish.
