Anvil Swage Multi-Purpose Block

Enclume
Anvil Swage from France:


This interesting block comes to us from France. This block has several unique features similar to Tsur Sadan block from Israel. The most obvious is that it is fully anvil shaped with a more rounded horn than the Israelite block. The other is the rectangular work block receiving groove in the bottom. While some blocks have this feature few have such a nice large space.

A work block is normally made of steel and may or may not be hardened. They often have small drilled holes and concave depressions for riveting, milled grooves to hold small work, pins for bending or a combination of features used in making a specific item. The block is wedged into a rectangular groove in an anvil or swage. These are most commonly found on cutler's anvils.

A round "pritchel" hole and a square "hardy" hole in the anvil face completes this block.

Dimensions:


.49 de long (19.3")
.10 de larg (3.94" wide)
.18 de haut (7.1" tall)
poid environ 35 kilo (77 pounds)
