Making 2 viking hammers for blacksmithing – depraved peen
I hand forged two blacksmith hammers with no power tools. I make the first hammer in my indoor blacksmith shop and use that hammer to make the other hammer in my outdoor blacksmiths shop. Open the full video description for more information.
Use a single piece of spring steel - big leaf spring.
The hammer design was common in the viking age used by blacksmiths as a basic blacksmith hammer. Doing the viking age was the hammers made by folding and welding - not like I do it in the video from one single piece of tool steel. Archaeologists have found lots of hammers from the viking age - mainly the cross peen design I show in this video and dog head.
A few quick questions:
1. Do you sell?
No. Don"t sell any thing.
2. What is the function of the pointy ears on the hammer head?
Makes more surface contact to the handle and that makes the handle lees likely to get loose. Also makes it possible to use a very thick wedge without the handle splitting or rejecting the wedge.
3. what is the dust you use on the hot steel?
Char coal dust - helps the punch not to get stuck.
4. What "power hammer" is that?
Treadle hammer. Here is a video only about the hammer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nmru3hXj47U
Video gear: Nikon D7000, Nikon 50 1.8, Røde videomacro, iMovie.
