Description

Bone edge iron. One rounded end, with straight sides, which at 3 1/8" the sides curve inward for 5/16". The iron tapers from this point until its 7/16" wide. The edges are shaved so they are wider on the bottom and taper as they reach the semi-circular finger rests. The bottom of the tapered edge curves slightly upward and meets a diagonal line. This cut-out leaves one side protruding 11/32".
