Got a powerhammer?   Do you know which alloy of stainless it is? (304, 316, ... 440C ?)

Nope, no powerhammer.  NO idea what the stainless is either.  nothing identifying marks on it.

Check to see if it attracts a magnet and then google search types of stainless steel.  You will learn more doing that first than you will pounding on it on your anvil.  I avoid stainless because it is really tricky unless you exactly what type it is...and then it is only tricky.
