Bench Block - Steel - 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" x 7/8"
Hardened steel block for chasing, planishing and riveting. Measures 2-1/2" square by 3/4" thick. It's important that a bench block be hardened. You can find bench blocks for a few dollars less, but it's not worth it because the cheap ones are not hardened. Buy a cheapie and you'll have pits and hammer marks immediately and these marks will transfer to your jewelry when you try to use the block. It's better to spend the extra couple of dollars and get a bench block that is hardened so it is a useful tool instead of a hinderance, and you'll have it for a lifetime.
