New forging hammer design

Here's this "long nosed cross peen" design I've been working on. It's 7 inches from face to face with a 14 inch handle. I'm guessing it will be between 3-4 pounds, just about right for up to inch square or round stock.

This is just the model, but I am in the process of getting a functional steel prototype made, and then go into small scale production with it. I also have variations of long nosed style that I'm working on. The, "TAI", designer hammer series...

If anyone is interested email me to get on the waiting list:

Tai,

I have a hammer similar to what you're describing, except the "long nose" is slightly curved. I'll have to measure, but 6 or 7 inches face to face and 3-4 pounds sounds about right on mine. I bought it at a farm auction last month, along with a flatter.
