This oval stud-link anchor chain is salvaged from a ship’s anchor. The chains that are used to secure a ship’s anchor differ vastly depending on the size of the ship. While this is a fairly large chain link, we have seen some that are easily twice as big!.
The oldest and simplest type of chain is coil chain. This is a piece of Stud-link Chain which is a variant of coil chain. The stud-Link chain has a bar or stud inside the width. Stud Links chains are preferred for anchor use. This is due to the fact the studs add weight, and prevent kinking and deforming.
Another great item to add to your nautical collection!
