Looks good. Where is your build? Laugh 

I prefer my metal engraving done by someone other than me.

Hand engraving is something I don't think I could ever learn..it takes a talent I don't have but wish I did. Crazy

I could bang out some simple geometric designs, but anything like he did is way out of my talent level.

Very nicely done, except for his singing.

The workmanship is excellent, but I am concerned about the tempering of the head...he was able to cut it easily with his graver..... Raised

My thoughts exactly, but in the end, I think he's only using it to whack other pieces of wood.  Hammers intended for professional use have rather sophisticated heat treatments to ensure durability, prevent shattering, and mushrooming of the head.  I remember in college in metallurgy class reading an article on Stanley heat treatment of their construction hammers.  It was something like a 17 step process.

Hammer manufacturers have been sued so many times that they now put disclaimer stickers on the handles, warning the user to wear safety glasses. Crazy ..It's a fine line they walk getting the heat treatment right...
