Another pseudo-wood project from the fires of Mt. Bobasaurus. I wanted to try forging my own damascus steel, so I made this low-layer-count (aka simple) billet from 1080 and 15n20 forge-welded together then made a little hammer from the end of it. It was a lot of work doing by hand, wish I had some power equipment for forging.
This is a jewelers raising hammer used for sheet metal forming. It’s a gift for my father who does jewelry work as a hobby. The handle is mahogany with a walnut wedge, finished with shellac and renaissance wax.
