Beautiful English-made traditional wooden blocks to complement any classic sailing vessel. The shells are constructed from ash timber varnished to a high gloss, while the bindings and bearings are out of stainless steel. The sheaves on blocks up to 4" are manufactured from Tufnol - a traditional laminated plastic. Sheaves on the larger blocks are out of hard-wearing ertalon.
The block is quickly and easily maintained with the removal of a single stainless screw.
The double ash block comes standard with a fixed eye. Also available with a becket.
A range of sizes is available to suit ropes up to 26mm in diameter.

Beautiful piece of work, great detail and finish; this will call for more orders. Excellent service. Will be used for stay sail sheet pulley.
These are classic blocks, and they're so beautiful that it's almost a shame to put them to work.
I tried many sources in the States for classic wooden-shell blocks, but the customary suppliers seem to be dropping wood for the durability of cheaper synthetic (and lower maintenance) ones.
Classic Boat Supplies had them and responded to my order right away. They arrived very carefully packed. Thank you.
