2 pound decorated bladesmith hammer
2 pound decorated bladesmith hammer. 2.5 pounds total. The flat face is gently crowned. Hung on a 13.5" hickory handle. The handle is 1/2 octagonal cross section 1/2 oval. It has been flame blackened and oiled to better seal it. The face is angled slightly downward to aid in the forging of edge bevels.
The decoration work has been done both hot, and cold with chisels, beveling tools, and punches. Forged from 1045 it has been heat treated and tempered to a "bronze" for daily use.
