Made in the USA
Hammer Making by Derek Melton
Total Run time is 2 hours 5 minutes.
Derek Melton is part-time blacksmith and bladesmith who is in Clinton, MS. He's been working with wood and metal for most of his life and making knives and other metal items since 1999. He appeared on Forged in Fire in 2018, and won the Champion title. He is on the board of the Mississippi Forge Council and can be found demonstrating blacksmithing. His current maker's mark is simply his name, "Melton" with an elongated and stylized "t" which represents his faith in Christ.
This DVD demonstrates how he makes a rounding hammer in the popular Brian Brazeal style. While Derek uses some pretty heavy equipment throughout the video, he also explains how one can carryout these same processes using hand tools.
