Hawkeye Helve Hammer

Recommended Posts

I have located a Hawkeye Helve hammer like the one in the attached picture. It is in the process of being restored and I would have to finish it. Can anyone give me a idea what a fare price would be for this hammer? Thanks Harold

HWHII, I don't know if you can call this a fair price, but I saw one go at an auction a year ago for $2800. The buyer had deep pockets, he flew up in his own airplane.....

I have one identical to that one. It came from a forge in NJ. The smith specialized in corn knives, but did anything that came through the door. It has not been used in over 50 years. I actually bought a few of the marked corn knives at an auction a few years ago. I hope to put it in service some day. I like the compact design. I plan on building a tower above the hammer for the motor, and drop a flat belt down to the pulley.

Mine was very inexpensive, but I have seen them sell for 1500-3000.
