Swinging a forging hammer the Helm way

Post by Storm Crow » Sat Jan 02, 2016 11:07 pm

I put together a little video yesterday showing how I swing a hammer when forging. It's something that I always start out with if I'm ever teaching someone. There are different methods, this is just how I do it.
