4140 forged to 1 1/2" x 3 1/2" square for the 2lb, or 1 3/4" x 3 3/4" for the 3lb, then punched. The hammer will be all you -- we just get the tedious hole punch out of the way! Just drift the hole to your desired size, shape it however you like, heat treat using our instructions, and add a handle. 


This is the stock we use for our 2 & 3 pound hammers. The hammer head with the hole punched will come in slightly under the weight mark, but with the handle added it will be back up to give you the perfect weight.
