When you’re looking to engage a Dursley blacksmith for a commission, one of the questions you’ll no doubt ask is, how much will it cost?
Don’t compare prices with mass-produced items
It’s important to remember that engaging the services of a Dursley blacksmith isn’t like buying a mass-produced item from a shop. You’re paying for the skill and craftsmanship of the blacksmith, and will be receiving a bespoke hand-made item. Therefore, it isn’t fair or reasonable to compare the cost of the item from your Dursley blacksmith to the amount you would pay to a retailer.
What to remember
When thinking about the cost of an item created by your Dursley blacksmith, remember that what you’re paying for is artistry, uniqueness and a beautiful object created by an expert using traditional skills that have been passed down through the centuries. What you’ll receive will be a unique, eye-catching and beautifully crafted item, which will stand the test of time.
