    My collection of forged center punches from Brent Bailey, Faram Forge, and MP Knives. The far left one is a punch I made myself, from 4140.

    It is the vulcanized liner material from USA Knife Maker

    Thanks. I managed to escape any deep hammer tracks in this one.

    haha it's fun, but not fun at the same time. I had a nice experience turning 2'' around to 1.75'' square.

    James Gibson makes really nice ones. Mines are pretty ragged, but I think it'll work out nice once I get a few done.
