I think these are the essential beginning tools for a smith starting out.
Hand forged 2 lbs cross peen hammer correctly hardened and tempered and well fit to a hickory handle. Student hammers are polished to a matte finish and do not exhibit the near mirror bright finish my usual hammers do.
Hand forged tongs to securely hold round square and flat steel. And a hardened and tempered tool steel( w-1 grade) punch.
You use these tools to make other tools and projects.
Made in Canada, priced in Canadian dollars. $279.95 if bought separately.
