A Huwood Mining Blast Pick.

Made from Iron. Size 18″ long.

This small blast pick was made by “Huwood”. These picks were powered by compressed air and were known as “Punchy Picks” perhaps different names were given to them in other collieries? The bottom collar will unscrew to insert the pick bit (which is featured on another page).
