sexy mojo star powered hammer

Here's a couple of pics of my new forging hammer. I layered up the billet for it from some of my phosphoric bloomery iron and meteorite. The meteorite is the layers standing proud on the cheek of the hammer. I also folded in a little bit of bloom iron given to me by the chief of a blacksmith's village in Burkina Faso, and a little bit cut from a hammer made by my first two blacksmithing masters. The face and peen are from a really nice piece of high carbon bloom I made by accident when i was trying to smelt something else. It ended up about 3 1/2 pounds, and it feels like forging with a lightning bolt!

 

Shameless plug: I've still got some of this meteorite that I'm selling over on the tools and materials section.

 

First pic as forged, the second after tempering and etching.

Lee that is indeed sexy and DRIPPING with Mojo, did you make the handle from the planks of the Methuselah tree? :D

Let not the swords of good and free men be reforged into plowshares, but may they rest in a place of honor; ready, well oiled and God willing unused. For if the price of peace becomes licking the boots of tyrants, then "To Arms!" I say, and may the fortunes of war smile upon patriots

Lee, you will let us know if that hammer has an unusual amount of personality, right?
