Yes. I made them as a present for a friend.
She's an incredibly skilled and talented metalworker, but generally prefers to work on a small scale, and mostly by hand.
This was just my way of gently taking the mickey, after pointing out that the largest tools she owns are a set of needle files.

She'll eventually notice that the hammer head is actually held on with a steel wedge. Then it will be her turn to laugh...

Sieg actually make a set, anvil, hammer and tongs.



No idea if they sell them but I scrounged  a set on the last visit over to China.

That would be a wonderful present for anybody. I'm both impressed and jealous.

I would love to see the process on how you made them. My wife just started blacksmithing and something like that would be a fantastic present.
