FYI, here's a better picture of the poker. If you look closely, you can see the twisting pattern in the shaft.

BTW, except for the handle and a tiny bit of grinding to get the tip of the hook right, all the work was done by hand, including hammering in the bevels on the entire length of the shaft, the twisting, and the forge welding.
