Default Wrought iron hammer build (steel face and peen)

I decided at the last demo session to make myself a new hammer..

It was first upset out of 1" wrought iron pulled from the Longfellow bridge in Boston and donated to me by a fellow smith..

He (Joe) also helped to upset it and then swung sledge and tong holding when needed .. It was his first wrought iron hammer build..

It went pretty well for being at a demo and it also went well for the limited tooling used..

If I defend myself I am attacked.

My meaningless thoughts are showing me a meaningless world.

My attack thoughts are attacking my invulnerability.

I'd like to think of something smart, but I don't want to hurt myself.
