    Those are real 'beauts' Ed. I'll bet they handle nice and produce great results.

    Thanks for the kind words Bill! I've been using them myself for about 20 years, and they profoundly changed my forging practices....made things so much easier. Not longer afterward I started getting requests for them, and been building them ever since.

    I can't take credit for the design, from what I can tell, its been around longer then I can track. Way back when I first starting smithing, I saw someone using a similar hammer at a demo I was attending. I asked him about it and he took the time to show me how to create one for myself. When I asked him if he minded if I made them, his reply was "Sure! They've been around forever anyway!" :)
