This shank takes you in that Old Time direction with its style and shape- it can be riveted into place thru a hole in the band or you can weld it into place. The square shoulders behind the chap guard are wide enough to be inlaid if desired. If you want those shoulders to be round then simply mount this shank in a hand drill and spin the shoulders against you belt grinder- takes seconds. Our spur shanks are made of mild steel, they come fully slotted, and fully beveled ready for you to weld them in place. The hole for the rowel pin is already there so you are ready to install the rowel once the shank is cleaned up. They are sold by pairs.
