Hammer axe w dragon forged into ball end? How?

Recommended Posts

Hi, my 2nd post. Just getting started w forging with main interest in bushcraft stuff such as heavy camp knives, cleavers, machete as well as light axes.

I have been searching for examples of axes made from hammers with decoration on the ball end, but have found nothing.

Any pointers please. Thanks Jack

First you need to know how to forge a dragon head, and there are lots of tutorials out there for that.  I'm not great at that kind of work myself.

Thank you Alan.

I've seen them done on ends of square bar but not into ball end of hammer. Was thinking to use a piece of clay to figure out how to.

Forge the ball into a square and go from there.
