  • my first forging hammer

    this is a special moment in a smiths journey (not that I consider myself a smith) and I just bought myself my first dedicated smithing hammer.

    Got it for a really good price, a nice vintage hammer.

    It's a ball-peen which I'll covert into a cross peen and rehandle.

    It is exactly the right weight as I found I favour a hammer hovering around the 2lb mark for most work.

    I'll update as I finish the project.
