Recommended Posts

are we talking sledges or forging hammers? i have a 10# plumb cross pein sledge,and as far as forging hammers go i have a 5.9# hand forged rounding hammer. Basically a lump of steel on a stick that i use to punch and drift hammer stock when i have no striker.

I married my wife for her 17# crosspeen; but the local store back there carried new ones to 20# and some old CCC folks claimed they used 32# ones to break rocks. (2 different groups located in different parts of the country making the claim a bit more believable)
