Ever wonder why metalsmiths have so many hammers?
Is it because we’re obsessed with tools? OK, maybe that’s part of the reason. There are so many because each hammer a metalsmith or jeweler uses is shaped (sometimes bizarrely) to perform a specific task.
This book is an introduction to the many different kinds of hammers and what each is used for. Whether you’re interested in chasing, sinking, or forging, this book will help you find the right tool for the job.
