Custom Hammers

I have been using texturing hammers and other specialty hammers in my forging process for years. What I have not done is to actually heat treat the hammer after altering it so that it would last for a long time! Well I finally did it, heat treated them both after I modified them. Both were ball peen hammers and each were created for special purposes. I am very pleased with the results.

The larger is a new de-scaling and texture hammer and the, smaller is a detail drawing hammer for smaller knives and for moving the metal back towards the choil area of the integrally forged blade.

I hope you enjoy the images:)
