How to make the rounding hammer with a striker, using only the tools made in the online course: "The Evolution of Tool Making".
This is a classic. This one has been asked for time and time again.
The rounding hammer became popularised in the blacksmithing community by Brian Brazeal. Brian’s affection for the rounding hammer originates from his history as a Farrier. As he transitioned into doing blacksmithing rather than shoe turning: he realised the benefits such a tool could have.
The round die is used primarily for your heavy material moving, the reduced surface area helps you penetrate the blow deeper into the steel and experience less jarring on your hand with a blow that is angled slightly off. Due to it’s “squashed ball” shape, it also offers a multitude of different radii that can be used for spreading and moving the material to your heart’s content.
This course is great for blacksmiths and farriers alike.
