So while I was getting some cheap hammers I also got this old 6 lb sledge hammer for $10, bought a handle for $10 and did it like the other one, these handles feel so good with the char and beeswax, it’s like a perfectly smooth handle that has some traction to it because of the wax, I can see why this has been the way blacksmiths have done there hammer handles for a long time, it kinda rocks.
Oh and the other hammer is just there for scale, and this thing would make an awesome entry tool, it’s compact and will fuck your shit up lmao.
I get the weirdest jobs🙂. Fancy stainless steel tube work just to convert a walker to a walker/shower chair/toilet chair combo for traveling. Also making it break down small enough to fit in a suitcase. #metalworking#blacksmith
Here's a recently completed "regal" rounding hammer. Decorated with file work to add some embellishment. If you're interested in owning one similar, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org we'd be happy to make you one on order. Reposted from @cergolforge
I got the handle all stacked up and shaped on this Ka-Bar inspired knife tonight. It's getting a polyurethane finish now. It will be available when it's finished! Don't hesitate to contact me if you want to snag it!
