Old Rusty Soft Faced Hammer Restoration

I found this old soft-faced hammer at my local scrapyard I really like the unique shape and the brass face. Not sure what kind of material the other face was originally but I only had this leftover hard plastic of unknown type.

I don’t think that grinding away the original metal to get a nice, shiny surface is worth ruining the history of the tool and the marks of the craftsman that used it. It’s going to be used as a tool to hit things with.

The handle is made from Beech with a Walnut wedge, coated with boiled linseed oil. Thank you very much for watching!

Big thanks to all my patrons especially Sithis Michaelis and Larry Radcliffe!
