The predominant tool of the armourer. Similar in shape to the silversmithing hammers, armourer's hammers are normally 2-3 times heavier than a similar tool used to work silver. An even and accurate hammer stroke is necessary to the production of crisp interpretations. Modern armourers can acquire such tools through some blacksmithing supply houses or from European toolmakers such as Peddinghouse. Sometimes old hammers can be acquired, and modified if necessary to do the required task. A modern armourer will have from between 20 and 100 hammers that they use regularly, with most preferring 2 to 5 for most of the work and the rest serving specialized purposes. These are often bought from tool collectors or modifies to solve a particular problem. See Chronique: The Journal of Chivalry #6.

A hammer is a tool used to bang on things with a weighty head and a light handle extending at right angles to the head. It is used by holding the handle and swinging the weighted end and letting the momentum of the head do the work that a stone held in the hand could not. Hammers range in weight from a few ounces in a jewelers hammer to many pounds in a full sized sledge. A common size for daily use is 16 ounces. A hammer may have two striking faces, which may be similar or different, or it may have one striking face with the other replaced with some other useful addition, such as the claw hammer which has two curved blades with a V-shaped groove that will catch on nails so they can be pulled out using the lever action of the handle. Other relatively common hammers include tack, bodywork, framing, and sledge.
