Can you Forge a Claw Hammer into a Cross Peen? Now this is a question I have been asking myself for a while now. I have an old Claw Hammer, which is actually pretty new, that could serve me much better as a Cross Peen. I know this may seem absurd but I would sincerely like to know if anyone has tried it before, or anything similar. I am new to blacksmithing and I have so many questions, but I thought I might as well start with a good (difficult) question. I think, if it were attempted,that you would have to ( Forge?) weld the claw side together and then forge them into a triangle shape, then heat treat and temper it. Again I am a complete Newbie to Blacksmithing but I am willing to learn!!! Thanks Guys, Jakob P.S. Here are some photos of the Hammer:
