Common Hammer for the Horseshoer and Farrier
Flatland Forge Farrier Supplies - Jim Poor Turning/Rounding Hammers
Great care goes into the custom heat treating of these rounding hammers. They are tempered back to be slightly softer through the bodies, and then hardened only on the striking ends. This 3 step process takes more time, but results in less vibration, and shock, with each blow of the hammer.
Our blacksmith rounding hammers come in different weights. The heavier the hammer the larger the body and faces. We make head weights of 1.75 lb., 2 lb., 2.25 lb. and 2.5 lb. Keep in mind that handles add some weight to the hammer. We have designed the handles to be slightly longer than most so the user can cut them off to the desired length.
The big Face hammers here is similar to the original Jim Poor rounding hammer
All Jim Poor Hammers have a 15" handle
