This classic style hammer sports the octagonal shape. It has versatility in many areas of forging, with both flat and swedged round faces. The rounded side is slightly faceted as compared to the original rounding hammer. With blacksmiths in mind, this hammer is available in a larger weight range, because we all know, you can never have too many hammers. You need one of each size! Made from 4140 steel and options of either a natural or blackened hickory handle. If you sweet talk Jonathan, he will customize the handle shape...just for you.
