Do you Drift your Ball Peen Hawk?

Recommended Posts

I picked up some large Ball Peen Hammers, I've found lots of info already on forging them into Tomahawks...

Question:  My Ball Peens seem to have a variety of hole diameters for the handle, all of which seem small for a Hawk.

Do most people use a drift to enlarge the original hole for a hawk?

Look at the brazeal style hammer making vids on YouTubeYouTube. It will show the "camel hump tools;-) use something like that to keep your cheeks from getting dented...
