Obviously, this block has a copper face, not wood. It belong to the strange triangular serifed face I bought last month (the Rob Roy Kelly website has a specimen of it). The proportions of this block seem a little off to me. The legs seem a little too tall, and the bowl a little too squished. I love how the right vertical stroke has a curve along the outside.
The left serif on the right stroke is truncated, unfortunately. Does anyone know what kind of fastener was used to attach copper faces to wood blocks? I’ve seen some that are screwed on, but this one is something different.
