To make the slanted eye you use the same punch, but you taper the body of the hammer itself so that when it's flat on the anvil the punch automatically makes a slanted

This technique worked like a charm. At first I didn't think I did it right so I bent the head like I did the first one and after fitting a handle even with the bend the handle was pointing upward so I bent the head in the opposite direction of the slanted eye. Tomorrow I'm straightening out the head re-heat treating it and putting the handle back on......And making a couple more hammers. I figure i better take advantage of having a couple minions for stikers.:P I wouldn't make this many hammers if I was swinging the hammer the whole time. Maybe this is Incentive to make tooling for my power hammer and get my press running and tooled up.

Oh yeah and as for the first one of these I made I couldn't be happier. It really does draw a point very nicely. I need to make a blade so I can test out forging bevels with it. I did use it for some normal forging and it seemed to move metal nicely I'm just kinda concerned about the carpal tunnel I've heard about with these types of hammers but it didn't seem to wanna twist it the hand.

You can see the slug sitting on the anvil through the eye.
