2 oz ball pein hammer
Ball Pein hammers have one flat face, one round face, and a hardwood handle. The face of a ball pein hammer is usually harder than that of a claw hammer. The head is made of heat treated high carbon forged steel.
A ball-pein hammer is also known as a blacksmith's hammer, an engineer's hammer or a machinist's hammer. It is distinguished from a point-peen hammer or chisel-peen hammer by having a round head.
The original function of the ball pein hammer was to peen riveted or welded material, though the process of peening has become less common in todays metal fabrication.
The ball-peen hammer remains useful for many tasks in jewelry making, such as striking stakes, punches and chisels to form the metal.
