Well, I've got a 2 and 3 pound and 7 pound, now I just need something in between like say 4-4 1/2 pound.  The larger the stock the easier it is, but I had a couple friends over a few weeks ago and we forged 3  and 3 1/2 pounders out of 1 3/8 axel shaft, just had to cut long and upset, kinda a pain, but that's the beauty of metal working, you make the material fit you, not you fit the material.
