I kept the item in my wish list and discovered it was again available, although at a slightly higher price (a bit over $1 more). I received the bench block in a timely manner, and it was packaged well. I could clearly see the oil inside the clear plastic wrap, and prepared for the wrap removal by placing the entire package on a paper towel. After I removed the outer wrapping, I wiped the entire block with a paper towel sprayed with denatured alcohol. All oil removed promptly. As a side note, all the oil on the block was a light yellow, which indicates clean oil. There were no traces of anything rough in the oil either.
The block has a satin finish. Although I can see the finish with my naked eye (ok, with my "cheater" glasses on), the finish did not transfer to my metal. I flattened and work hardened with a leather mallet both Bronze and Fine Silver with no transfer of finish nor marring to the block's surface. I also like the the larger size for when I'm working with larger jewelry/art pieces (I also have a smaller bench block for smaller work, e.g., ear wires, wire bails).
The product came nicely wrapped and covered in an oil coating. It sat flat on the table and all her requirements were met.
In Summary: Safe bet if you're a hobbyist or have a home based jewelry business.
