Completed straight peen

it would have been far easier to buy one of these but that's $ 40. and no experience gained. Along with the honor of making it myself I could incorporate the two radius I have needed.
To make this hammer I needed a slitting punch and a drift both of which I made.
A difficult heat treating job but I got lucky and this hammer works great. Hammer 2 lb, straight peen 3/4" radius to match bottom fuller, other radius 1 1/4" for anvil face work, 1045 axel steel and handle is green ash.
