  • The Centaur BLD Hand Forged Straight Pein Hammers were designed and inspired by the Swedish Cross Pein Hammers with their graceful curves and good balance on both sides.
  • Straight pein hammers excel at aggressively drawing out steel to long its length as well as draw steel out in different directions depending on the angle you hold your hammer at.
  • First Brandon forges these hammers out from 1045 tool steel, then they are heat treated and tempered.
  • The edges of the hammer face and pein are finished so that your hammer is ready to use as soon as you get it.
  • The eye is drifted from both ends to produce an hourglass double taper that gives a tight fit on the handle.
  • The handles are carved from American Hickory and finished off with a Mahogany handle wedge.
  • The handle is shaped to allow for a comfortable grip for different hand sizes.
  • The Mahogany wedge makes a beautiful contrast with the Hickory handle.
  • Brandon takes time to shape the contours and the swell of the hammer handle so that it will fit perfectly into your hands.
  • Both the handle and the head are boiled in linseed oil to help achieve a tight fit and to give the woof a smooth finish and protect the steel from rust.
  • Because the pein is thicker than those of mass-produced hammers, you will feel a better balance when you swing and find that it is easier to smooth out the forging with a larger surface area.
  • You can tell Brandon takes pride in every stage of the tool making process.
