I talked about them in my Basic Bladesmithing video, and have had many requests. Here are the "Angle Peen" hammers that I first created for myself because traditional cross peen and straight peen hammers were just too uncomfortable and unnatural to use. The cost is $209.25 each (Includes Priority Shipping/Insurance) for the hammer with one of my "split", hickory handles installed. (shipping outside the CONUS will be actual cost via USPS Priority International. (Contact me for shipping rates)
Payment methods accepted:
Check or Money Order (either must clear prior to shipping), Paypal (using paypal will add 4% to the total), Visa/Mastercard (3.5% processing fee applies)
The hammers are available in right or left hand models. The finished weight with the handle installed is listed with each photo below. Since each hammer is hand made, the weight can vary slightly from hammer to hammer. The hammers are forged from 4140 steel, so there are slight differences in each hammer. The eyes are drifted to fit a standard Large "Blacksmith" hammer handle, available at most hardware stores. The peens on these hammers are offset at a 45 degree angle, which allows the user to draw out the material they are working on by simply flipping the hammer over, while remaining in a natural hammering position. The "Double Draw" hammer is designed for drawing out stock, both lengthwise and width wise, simply by flipping the hammer over. With the "Double Draw" hammer, you can draw the edge bevels into a blade without having to "back bend" the blade prior to forging the bevels. It is also an excellent tool for creating distal tapers. One final note....
these hammers are softer than hammers that are commercially available. The reason for this is that I would much rather clean up a ding in the hammer face, than have to repair a ding in the anvil face from a missed blow...... so don't expect a super hard hammer face. They will hold up just fine for hot work, but will ding if used on cold or hardened materials.
I must emphasis that the angle peen hammers hammers must be forged for either right or left handed use, so if your ordering, please ensure you specify right or left handed. Double drawing hammers are ambidextrous.

"Double Draw" Hammer
Used as a drawing hammer. One side is used to draw hot steel out lengthwise, and by flipping the hammer over, hot steel can be drawn width wise.
