    Planishing Hammers

    Had a search and could not find a thread on planishing hammers and so thought I would start one and add an image of a hammer I've just made.

    4oz head - ok, not forged, but machined from mild steel with case hardened faces.

    More details of the hammer and some more images of it here: Small Planishing Hammer – glue-it.com

    4 oz is a good weight I like the shape and length of the handle. Seems to be about right for resting the end of the handle in the palm while gripping the handle with thumb and forefinger so you can simply rotate your wrist allowing the bounce of the hammer do most of the work
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Beautiful handle work Nigel and like the shape! Seems a good weight and head shapes for most small work. Nice Job!
