This is the top of the line hammer for freehand peening. It is a very well made and finely balanced peening hammer. The hardened faces give excellent rebound and feedback. You can feel as well as see the changes as the blade's edge responds. Both the face and cross-peen have slight convexity to improve performance, accuracy and limit marring of the scythe's cutting edge. This is an expensive hammer and is meant to be used for freehand peening.
We recommend restricting the use of either of these fine hammers to freehand peening to keep the faces in good condition. Not recommended for use with a peening jig.
