Nothing says handcrafted like hammered metal. Not only is the pattern random, but the angle and depth of the blow are too, which is hard to replicate with a machine. To get this look on your own projects, Eurotool sells a set of three hammers with two different striking patterns each.

The hammers are hardened to Rockwell 48 and are meant to be used on non-ferrous metals, which in this case means metals that don’t contain iron rather than non-magnetic. When using the hammers you want to back the piece with with a metal block or anvil.

You’ll pay $50 for this set of three hammers. Eurotool also sells hammers with other patterns.

    I thought it was my glasses but, the front view of the left center hammer and the back view of the top right one sure look like twins.
    Close examination does reveal a different number of “lines” on the two. I guess there is a little difference after all.

    Could be useful if you want to hide surface imperfections. “I did that on purpose with these hammers.”Wait for compliments.

    I have used similar hammers to work silver, brass and copper for jewelry making. It’s possible to use wood between the material and the metal base to get differing effects. It’s also possible to use power buffing wheels to round over the peaks made by the hammer to create a softer effect.

    I’m gonna buy some cheap ass hammers from HF and make my own with a Dremel. Thanks for posting!
