Very cool looking!

Does the ergonomic part work?

I’ve never used a stepped handle on a striking instrument like this. Which face is the impact side? I can see using the left face (as pictured) to reduce an impact induced rotational torque, useful for metal shaping, but I’m interested in hearing more about the applications for wood working…

It’s an interesting design.

Nice. On my list of things to do. Hope anything I build comes out as well as yours.
