I Forge Iron

Building hammers

If you are just starting out I might suggesting punching the eye first as that's the most difficult part and if you mess it up you don't have to throw away all the other shaping work.

Pre-drilling a "guide hole" for the punch or slitter usually helps a lot to get the hole nicely centered---as does rotating the piece in the forge to make sure the heat is even on both sides.
