What’s the weight on that? Honestly, very impressed. All by hand, I assume?

3.5 lbs as of now. Square and round Horn will be Forge welded on tomorrow. So will the carbon steel face plate. Yup all by hand  forge welded from 4 pieces so far  will be probably 7 total 

thanks

Great job so far. Be careful heat treating the faceplate. Seems like it would be tricky to keep it from seperating from the body during HT.

I didn't realize the size of it until just now lol. I was thinking it was much larger until I noticed the Anvil under it. You HT steeled hammers pretty frequently don't you? It should be similar I would guess but it's just that, a guess. Good luck.

You were a blacksmith in a previous life as well as this one..  That is both inspirational and a bunch of work.  Well done. 

mild steel or wrought iron?
