Approximate Specifications:

Head Weight: 3 lb
Handle Length: 12" Hickory
Face Hardened and Tempered 4140 Carbon Steel

This is a heavy duty "forward weighted" bladesmithing hammer. It is designed for forging bevels. The forward weight allows the user to put less effort into swinging the hammer. The hammer is slightly down turned to aid in forging.

Each hammer is made to order and lead times apply.

Average review
The hammer is very nice but the wrong handle color was sent. I was disappointed because of this and the fact that he didn’t respond to me asking about the handle. Other than these two things it is a good product.
