I know! That is why I had to buy it at a flea market. I was totally amused by the shape of this hammer. It was even more fun to carry it around as my Sis and I continued to cruise the flea market.
I think it is a riveting hammer of a by-gone profession. I really don’t know for what or how it was used. Any ideas? I don’t use it but it is part of my hammer collection.
One of the many reasons I love being a metalsmith is the opportunity to buy and learn to use new tools. We’ll be exploring my studio to see some of my favorites and how I use them. Here’s a preview of what’s to come.
You can never have enough.
You cut it all by hand?
Well, almost all of it.
Fire, my lovelies.
What I can’t live without.
BTW this is my riveting hammer, a bit different in shape and size, but a similar function.
