The CMA blacksmiths chose to make these sledgehammers at the weight of 8lbs. because it offers a wide range of versatility. It has all the weight and mass to deliver a powerful blow, yet it can be choked up on for repetitive swinging

The pillowed, flat face is great for striking set tools, forging directly on material,  establishing shoulders, and planishing larger forgings.

The peen aggressively spreads and draws out material perpendicular to its orientation.
