This faceted oval punch is the same shape that we use to punch all our hammers at The Center for Metal Arts. Hy-Tuff is an incredibly strong material and ideal for this application. The faceted point helps you find your center punch mark and keeps you lined up during the beginning stages of the punching process. Hy-Tuff is air hardening but can be quenched during use to keep the tool cool. Although incredibly tough the faceted punch can be dressed well with a file when cold. When hot, this material is still strong and resilient, and I have designed this tool to sand up to lots of abuse. With lots of strength behind the punch this tool is forged to last a lifetime.
Please contact us with any questions, I am happy to discuss the material, shapes, and use of this tool with you.
