The Sturlin Goldsmith's Hammer is a modern and sleek version of the classic Goldsmith's hammer designed in collaboration with Award winning Goldsmith Michael David Sturlin.
It is available in 2 options - a wide extended cross peen for forging, spreading, and texturing, and a long tapered ball peen for texturing surfaces and setting rivets.
Both versions have a substantial head, weighing in at approximately 150g. Each head features a slightly domed 1 inch face with softened edges. The heads are complimented by an ergonomic Osage Orange handle, designed with a slender shaft and a smooth sweeping grip to create unmatched comfort and performance.
"These hammers are designed for every level practitioner from beginner to expert and will find a suitable home in any metalsmith's studio. Congratulations on your purchase, we hope you will enjoy using these exceptional tools for many years to come."
