Damascus chasing hammers


Recommended Posts

These are 3 hammers that started as 30 sheets of 1080 and 15n20. With the tutelage of Dave Lisch, these were pieces of steel were forged into a billet. Then Larry Langdon of Monster Metal was kind enough to let me come and play on his machines and turn the billet into a set of chasing hammers. The handles were cut and shaped from osage orange. I'll be doing another set of video tutorials where every Tuesday I'll release another video in the next series

Thanks everyone. I'm really pleased with the way they turned out. I've grown so attached to them, I'm finding it hard to strik the first blow...

Very cool Saign. I think that using them might add a pleasing texture to the faces given the finished nature of your chasing tools.
