I hand forge two single face style hammers which some call a cutler, dog ear or dog head hammer. The eye is placed towards one end. This creates a dropping effect when swung making this type of hammer easy on the arm. Each hammer weighs approximately 2 pounds.
I offer 2 sizes:
Japanese style - 32mm square x 110mm long
Stubby style - 40mm square x 80mm long
Both are made from YK30 steel which is a Japanese steel similar to O1.
For handles I use guava tree wood which is commonly used for tool handles in Asia. I shape the handles to be ergonomic based on if you swing a hammer right or left handed. I feel my hammers are top quality - hand forging improves the form and function...
