Hey Guys, during my autumn holly days I paid Julien Puy a visit in his shop near Dijon in France. I stayed with his family for four days. I helped him out in the shop, therefore he showed me some cool new stuff. He used to be a blacksmithing instructor for four years and did a lot of traveling around the world especially USA, the Netherlands, Germany and the Czech Republic. On the first day we made this clothes hanger: The second day we made two Brazeal style rounding hammers. One was for a customer of Julien, he was forging and I was striking. Here you can see a video of it: After that we made a second one for me. I forged and he striked. Unfortunately there is no video of it... Toolsteel with a carbon content of 0,48% was used, pretty similar to 1045 or C45 steel. The handle I made myself from African hardwood. The hammer head ways somewhat around 3lbs. It is hardened and partially tempered at the cheeks. The all-in-all price for that one was 150€ (~200$). The next day we made inter alia this axe blank from pure iron I will weld in a cutting edge and finish it soon:
