      I guess humans used a rock attached to a stick as a hammer when they started doing black smithing

                Where do you get suitable blocks for making hammer heads and the like? All the hardware stores around here mostly sell rebar, flat stock, sheet, or thin rods. Just got into forging myself and made my first crappy, wobbly tongs out of rebar yesterday. Is it something that's better off purchasing online?

                        What kind of heat treating would need to be done to that hammer? I'm excited to try such a project, but I think first I have to make the punch and the billet (sp?)

                                            People who have never done this type of work won't understand just how in shape you must be to swing that hammer and talk without being completely out of breathe. Always love your work.

I've had a funny looking hammer in my tool box for years and never knew what it's name was or its use: It was short on one side and 3-4" long on the other side and round with almost no taper. - its a handled punch! Good one! -- and then again I could be completely wrong...
