At this price you won't regret buying this rounding hammer. Very well made and for general forging work the dressing quality is great.
I bought the 2.5 to try I have always used a cross peen and never had the chance to try a rounding hammer. For the price it cannot be beat. This is now my new favorite hammer.
My step-father bought his first set of Diamond Rounding hammers back in '76 at horse shoeing school. We've had them in our shop every since. They still are in great shape even after 40 years of being used for forging shoes, fence parts, flowers, knives, and axes.
I bought a new set for myself (and for him) back in 2013 from Kayne and Son. What a great set of hammers! They feel good in the hand and the crown on the rounding side of the hammer is nice and aggressive, allowing it to move lots of metal.
My only complaint is that they come with some kind of of finish on the head that stinks really bad when it starts burning off with the first strike of hot metal. It burns off eventually, though.
From one amateur to anyone else, I'd recommend these beasts to anyone. They're great hammers.
