I Forge Iron

Forging hammer, Japanese style

Just finished for a friend. One pic shows the round face. The other pic, the squarish poll with chamfered corners. We started with square, medium carbon steel to be forged into the round for the head and face. The eye is rectangular, which is traditional for Japanese forging hammers. The poll isn't used for forging, just as a bit of counterpoise. Head length is 4 5/8" overall and the face is 1 3/8" D.
