I Forge Iron

Cross and Rose

Recommended Posts

I took a cheap little 7 oz ball pien hammer and took a cutoff wheel with a real thin disk and cut grooves in the face of the hammer.


I have been experimenting with doing the same, not quite satisfied yet with my results, I think I have been cutting the grooves too deep perhaps? may just be my hammering skills : ) .

I can try to get a picture tomorrow and post it of the face of the hammer if that would work. The one thing I found out was when you think you have hit the piece enough with the texturing hammer, your about halfway done.... I really had to work it over good with the hammer to get that effect. Also make sure the steel is at a good forging temp. Thats why I used the lighter hammer, I could hit it repeatedly and not really move much material, just leave the texture on the surface.
