I don't normally post my work. I usually do "how to" stuff, but this was a really nice hammer that LDW and I made today, so I think it's worth posting. This is a hammer that will be awarded to someone for something that I can't discuss just yet, but it turned out nice. This is all forged with a striker, and the only grinding is done on the faces.

A nice hammer which reminds me of my ole horseshoeing days. I like the broadened cheek for more gripping surface to the wood. Does anyone know why a farrier might want such a hammer for turning and finishing horseshoes? I do.

I started out with an old Heller Brothers rounding hammer. Of course, a rounding hammer can also be used by the blacksmith for various operations.

This is the hammer you were finishing up while I was on the phone with your yesterday? Either way this is a work of art, it is absolutely gorgeous.
Nice work Brian as usual.
