  • The Centaur BLD Cross Pein Hammers are hand forged by Brandon L. Dearing from new 1045 mild carbon steel.
  • The peen is left thicker than whatís available on most mass-produced hammers which will help eliminate cold shuts as you forge.
  • The face of each hammer is ground up to a 120-grit finish then buffed out for a semi polished, semi satin finish.
  • The eye is drifted from both ends to produce an hourglass double taper that gives a tight fit on to the handle.
  • Every hammer head is heat treated and tempered before being fit to the handle.
  • The handles are carved from 2" thick hickory, then carefully shaped and contoured for a comfortable fit as possible to your hand for swinging day in and day out.
  • The handle is shaped to allow for a comfortable grip for different hand sizes.
  • The head is hung with a mahogany wedge, which holds the hammer securely and makes for visual contrast between the hickory and steel.
  • The final step is applying several coats of linseed oil to the hammer and handle.
  • Every part of the hammer making process is done 100% by Brandon L Dearing.
  • With care this hammer will last for years of use.
