    Sam totally makes a straight peen - might not be on the web store, but I've seen pix on IG.
    If you want a lefty diagonal, I'm sure he'd make one for you! :D

    Now that I've got the cross, I want the straight for drawing. Recommendations were for the cross for versatility, but drawing is a little more awkward with it. And a dog's head. Have to have a dog's head for forging bevels. Duh. :p

    Between 5 pairs of tongs and 4 hammers I should be able to make SOMETHING.
    Ok, two more fancy hammers is my stretch goal.
    Sell a knife, buy a hammer. That's the plan. :D

    when we had our hammer-in down here a month or so ago, one of the guys brought a 2-sided diagonal -- it was ambidextrous!

    Forgotten Puronvarsi blades now will get their handles and sheaths. This particular blade is shortened to 110mm, the spine straightened and satin finished to 1000 grit. Handle is ebony and padauk with brass bolsters. These blades are extremely sharp and hold their edge and are too nice to be forgotten. I have six and will finish them with different style handles. Then I will get back to my own blades.

    Thanks, Boss!! :D

    It will definitely cut... I'm still in the honeymoon phase and afraid to get that hand-brushed finish all marked up. :rolleyes:
