info on KAS small hammer use? industry? age?
« on: May 14, 2018, 06:17:00 PM »
Any info? My guess is silversmith or gunsmith. About 4.6 oz. What is the correct term for the "peen" end, cone peen?

Thank you,

Being that small, I tend to agree that it could be a jeweler's hammer. The face reminds me of a round-faced riveting hammer; hence it could be a small scale version for delicate jewelery work.

Might be a punch on a stick rather than a hammer?
