I am thinking about making a combination hammer eye punch/drift. Why a combination? I do not want to make two tools to make a tool.

Now, the directions I find for a hammer eye drift seems to be:
1) start with round, about 1 inch.
2) shoulder to form a hand grip, or taper back to allow a dressable area for
