Started from a ball peen about 16 oz, USA stamped. Forgot that my phone was plugged in, but I got a few pics later in the process.

Here it is after some of the Blade was beginning to be forged out, right before I started drifting the eye.



A bit more forging...


Forged to shape all but the spike end. Time for a little profile cleanup on the grinder.


Drifted the eye out larger to fit a regular hammer handle.


Got it close to finished. After this I normalized in the oven and then did a bit of finish grinding. May heat treat tomorrow.

Do you have a power hammer or are you doing this all by hand? Great job either way.

Power hammer, home built. Still quite a bit of handwork to get everything even up.

It's about 1/8 proud of the top, just can't see it from the photo angle. Since it's a modern wedge fit like a hammer or hatchet, not a traditional tomahawk tapered shaft fit, I figured that it shouldn't stick out too far.

I've got a bucket full of hammer heads. Likely to do some hammer poll sometime.
