Blacksmith Hammers for all your forging needs.

The blacksmith hammers and forging tools we sell are designed to be put in the hands of professional blacksmiths therefore the edges of these hammers may require final radius'ing.   Most professional Blacksmiths have their own idea as to the radius they need.

For more info on this subject please read the book by Mark Aspery,  Skills of a Blacksmith, Volume 1, Chapter 3.

A note about Flame Hardening of wood handles   - The Indians discovered that tempering hickory over live flame gave the wood a hard protective finish, a tightly sealed surface that resisted harmful weather. This process actually strengthened the fibers of hickory, the toughest wood known.   The principle of live flame tempering remains unchanged. But where the Indians went at it trial and error, today the process is regulated with the most modern equipment to make sure that the moisture is removed at slow enough rate and to proper levels.  If  moisture is removed too quickly and too much the wood will crack.  In fact, due to this kiln drying process used today, it is believed that flame hardening handles that have already been kiln dried may be detrimental.   Flame Hardening of hammer handles and other forging tools purchased from Blacksmiths Depot is not recommended.

Moving metal is what the forging blacksmith hammer is for.  Whether we use one or many depends on the work we do.  Some blacksmiths are able to use one hammer to move metal in many directions and still have control of those directions.  Some will use several forging hammers to achieve the desired outcome.  Ball peen hammers and round faced hammers are generally not the standard blacksmith forging hammer as they have move metal in an elliptical movement which means less control.  Forging hammers with square faces will move metal in a more controlled method.  The traditional cross peen hammer is a German style blacksmith hammer, but Swedish and Czech style forging hammers are very popular. We also have blacksmith hammer handles if you prefer to forge your own hammer.
