Forged a Hammer with my Dad

Recommended Posts

This weekend I forged a hammer with my Dad.  This was the first time I have forged a hammer solo ( without someone more experienced at least watching ).  It turned out great.  The final weight was around 3lbs 8 oz and was forged from 4140 truck axle that was 1 7/8 diameter and about 4 1/2 inches long (if my memory serves me right )  This could not have been possible without the great mentoring I have recieved from Lyle Wynn, Ed and Brian Brazeal and David Gaddis.

Looks great! I can't wait to make a hammer like this. Just need to make a stop by the ol' junkyard and pick up and axle or three.

Couldn't ask for better than that, and you got Pops in on the action.  Decades from now you'll remember that time whenever you look at that wonderful tool.
