Bladesmithing hammers

Recommended Posts

I use a farriers style rounding hammer for almost everything including blades,,thaey have a slightly convex end on one end a almost flat on the other..they are balanced so I can turn to eith side as I need. I contour the handles so it fits my hand perfect when the flat side is towards the anvil if I pick it up with the round end down it feels different. I can tell from the feel with out looking. I would feel like I had a half a hammer if I could not use both ends of the hammer head.
