4 pound decorated rounding hammer
Weighing in at 4 pounds, this rounding hammer has some pretty intricate decoration on it. The designs are plant inspired, both sides have a centerpiece of a flowers of sorts, though quite geometric. The flowers are framed by an ornamental border band of punched designs. Flanking either side is a simple tree form.
The faces are rectangular in form. The flat face is heavily crowned. The rounding face is a proper 'squashed ball' radius. They both retain their bronze colors from tempering.
Hung on a 15.75" hickory handle. The top half is octagonal in cross section, transitioning to oval near the bottom. The bottom has been flame blackened and oiled to better seal it. The eye carries a walnut wedge and two steel tubular wedges.
