We are so excited to offer our first version of our Cross Peen Blacksmith’s hammer. Made from 4140 steel, heat treated to 42 Rockwell, the cross peen allows you to push and pull metal perpendicular to your body. This was often used in the forming of “scarfs” for forge welding pieces of structural steels together. Useful for a wide range of forging projects from knife making to general smith work, this hammer is a solid two pounds and is a good weight for the vast majority of people getting into the craft.
The handle is made from locally sourced pecan wood (identical in characteristics to hickory) and has been vacuum oil stabilized. We are currently the only shop in the country that makes oil stabilized handles. The hammer is well fit and finished and should render years of good service! All hammers come stamped “PURGATORY” with a serial number. The handle will also be personally signed by Trent!
