    I got the brass for this a couple years ago but found out i didnt have the tools to finish it...

    Had some time to kill at work last week so finished milling it square and milling out the hole for the handle.
    Weighs in at 1 lb, 13.7 oz

    Dont know if I'll do anything to the handle, but i may do some notching to the head to give it a mjölnir look.

    This is my go to Hammer; a couple pound rawhide piece I inherited from my grandpa. It does a fantastic job breaking things loose without doing any damage I use it all the time:

    that's how we all envision ourselves when wielding a hammer, even if it's nothing like mjolnir
