Griswold large Slant logo #5, 8, 724 cast iron skillet. There are no cracks, breaks, etc. There are odd grind marks throughout the outside of this skillet, it doesn't look like they were done trying to improperly clean it, or anything like that. I have no idea what happened, but if I had to guess I would say whoever was on the grinder at the foundry finishing this one did not have a lot of experience or was hungover.Who knows how it got there, other that that.... There may be other casting flaws, utensil marks, scratches, dis colorization, staining, etc. Has not been used since the restoration process. Photos were taken outdoors in natural light and are a big part of the description. Pretty flat with just subtle movement at certain angles / pressure. I've restored hundreds of pieces of cast iron cookware. All go through lye to remove any crud, organic material, seasoning, etc. Then I run them through the electrolysis process to remove any corrosion, rust, impurities, etc. They are scrubbed by hand using dish liquid, stainless steel scouring pads, stainless steel brushes, and magic erasers under cold water to bring them back to the bare metal finish.
Finally, all pieces are run through three rounds of seasoning using vegetable shortening. Cast iron cookware will last hundreds of years and generations if properly taken care of. These are beautiful, heirloom quality pieces made right here in the USA.
Will be bubble wrapped and surrounded by packing material to ensure that they don't shift in transit. They are not making cookware like this anymore, and I would consider it tragic if anything were to happen to these in transit. Just contact me before to make sure we can make arrangements that work for both of us and I'll add the option to the listing.
