Hammer Blank Dimensions


Recommended Posts

Anyone have favorite dimensions to start their hammers?

I have a steady supply of forklift tines that I may cut into blanks and sell off to fund my smithing.

2"x2"x3.5" yields about 4lb.

Considering scale loss and hole punch, would this be a good size to cut them up into?

I know not all forks have the same thickness, which would change the weight. So I'm more concerned with the length of the blank.
