Product Information – Jonathan Nunn Forging Hammer
The Jonathan Nunn forging hammer design concept came about from Jonathan’s own need to make a versatile hammer which puts energy into the hammer strike. The flat face weight improves the direct hit of the hammer blow and gives a more controlled and predictable hammer blow. The chosen material H13 is a hard yet lively tool steel which gives bounce back rather than a dead hit thus reducing effort and strain on the user.
Jon Nunn forging hammers benefit from:
High quality H13 heat treated tool steel;
Flat face weighted for greater striking control and accuracy;
Large strong eye which has waist to allow the shaft to remain tighter;
Compact design, with less wobble during use;
Face diameter is the perfect size for drawing and flattening steel;
Height and length of the flat face gives wear longevity;
The head length allows the user to drop your hand when clipping;
Large mass of material around the eye gives strength to the centre of the hammer.
