    Made this a number of years ago in the shop at my Dads old school. 1/2" square stock steel, hammered into a point.

    still need to do an epoxy/ leather wrap on it.

    Its not done yet......still need to heat it up and let it cool slowly in the oven...gotta drill 2 holes for the epoxy cord wrap, plus a lanyard hole. Then i'm going to heat it, quench it, temper it in the oven and blacken it with beeswax.

    Thanks, the peen on this thing is massive. It might as well be another hammer. Got plenty of hammers, but wanted one for really dispersing steel on big leaves.

    Nothing specific today, just getting familiar with the new hammer.
