It's one of the basic tools of the professional blacksmith and farrier; the hammer provides the strength and leverage to form, shape, drive, and clip, enabling masterful manipulation of metal and hoof. Each hammer is built in a unique shape with varying weight and function to answer your blacksmithing and farrier needs as specifically as possible.
Our forging hammers range from German pattern hammers to straight and cross-pein hammers for blacksmithing demands both basic and advanced. These hammers are ultra-tough and made to last through countless sessions of metalwork. Grips are crafted from quality woods and finished to give that custom-grip feel that makes the blacksmith hammer all your own.
Clipping a horseshoe is a highly precise task that combines several skills and techniques. To get the most out of your clip-forging technique, you'll need a clipping hammer that is well-balanced to avoid twisting and carefully constructed to provide shock absorption and toughness. Check out our other farrier horseshoe hammers, too!
