24oz Dwarven claw hammer

24oz Dwarven claw hammer

Hand forged from 1045 steel. The eye has been hot punched and then drifted with a tapered oval drift from both sides to create the all important "hourglass" shape in the eye. This helps the hammer better stay affixed to the handle in hard use. The shoulders have been set in with set hammers. It has been differentially heat treated; so that the faces are hard and the body is softer. It is made to withstand hard daily use.  

The flat face is gently crowned to drive nails with ease and to not leave errant hammer blows. It is also square, making it good for getting into hard to reach corners. The claws are cut hot and taper in two directions to pull nails easily. The entire top of the hammer/claws has been ground smooth to prevent marring when pulling nails. The tips of the claws are thin and sharp. This is an excellent weight of hammer for heavier framing work. 

The stout handle is American hickory. It has been lightly burned and oiled to seal it. There is one wood wedge in the eye, and one round metal wedge to secure everything.
