Large Embossing Hammer
The Large Embossing Hammer is used to dome metal from the inside. The metal is stretched from the inside as it is easier to control because the shape becomes rigid. The Embossing Hammer also leaves a very interesting dimpled texture on flat and slightly domed metal when hammering on the outside of a form against a stake. Made of 420 stainless steel and Padauk wood.
Embossing is the stretching of the metal by hammering from the inside. This hammer is also used to form flutes and form the metal while it is supported by pitch or wax. This would be similar to chasing but is done by directly striking the metal with the appropriate hammer.
