I have here for sale a nice little rounding hammer with the head weighing in at 2.5 lbs. I forge these from brand new 1045 steel bar stock. I make the eye by punching a hole and then enlarging it by driving a drift through from alternate sides and forging the cheeks out at same time. This leaves me with a slightly hour glass shaped eye so the handle wedges in nice and tight. I then forge in the rounding and flat face of the hammer, let it cool, rough grind it, and then harden and temper it. I then finish polishing the faces so that they will not leave extra marks in your work. I shape the hickory handle so that it is comfortable in the hand, then lightly burn in, and soak it in linseed oil. I now have the weight stamped on one side the other side just has my name. I only ship to the continental U.S
