blue as the Record stuff.  It has a pronounced ring when it is hit.   Perfect
size for a small shop not doing smithing.  Is this a common maker in a common

I have one similar to Ed’s. I paid about $1.75 a pound for mine at a local flea
mkt. At 15 lb. I was able to throw it in my backpack and keep on shopping. Nice
to have for the little bits of cold work I do.
