Part one of 2, the forging of a Atlantic 33 Flutagon hammer... only reason it's not done yet is I had to wait on the handles to get delivered... I really need a lathe lol... but yeah. Flutagon is a treat to work with, especially with its heat treatment.. just dunk it in some water and polish it.... good to go!
Just a Hobbyist Blacksmith, tooling up to tackle backyard projects.
I have a YouTube channel where I am posting my projects.
I do sell some of what i make, feel free to ask!
I love it.. been using a 2lb one I made much like the one in the video for a few months now, and honestly it holds up better than some of my other hammers. According to metalsmith.org, it achieves 58-62 Rockwell... now if j read that correctly that is using some water jet cooling, so I am likely on the low end of that, just using my slack tub, probably if I had to guess, 55-58... it bounces just less than a bearing.
