    Default My first Hammer.

    Hello all,
    Im new to engraving, I am currently an apprentice to a master gunsmith in Germany.
    But have found a new love and passion in engraving.
    I am still very very new and i suck and obviously as a student dont have much money for tooling.
    So i made this little hammer up and in terms of the weight and flexibility in the shaft it suits my needs.
    I intend on making more but i just finished this and thought i would share it with you all so you can tell me what you think.
    The head is tool steel and the handle oak.
    I blued the head as i thought it would look nice and obviously help with preventing it from rusting.
    It was turned from 30mm round bar and then i milled the flats and filed and polished.
