Our Toroku Blacksmith Hammers are hand forged by Mr. Hiroki Aida, third generation hammer maker. He uses the Hizukiri method to give his hammers a fine grain pattern, thus increase their strength and length of life. Hizukiri refers to traditional manufacture of swords which requires low heat and many light forge strikes over a long period of time. Mr. Aida is one of the last makers to use the Hizukiri method. Toroku blacksmith hammers are well balanced and useful for other purposes besides forge work. Each hammer head has been heat treated and tempered one at a time and comes installed on a Japanese white oak handle. Weight is 54 ounces and overall length is 12".
