I'm pretty new to the profession, I have learned on polo ponies and light performance horses. I am in the process of bying my own tools and was looking for a little advice. I have narrowed my search down to a blurton, NC, or a Jim Poor. Also, have considered a horsehead. I have to mail order and can not try them out before I purchase. Can anyone send me in the right direction.

Also, same question for rounding hammers (I will be cold shoeing)...

Thank you.

Myr_4089(weird name),

If price is your concern NC is a good driver for the money, if price is not a concern then i would lean toward the Blurton or the Poor. I have used all 3 of them and i personnally like the Poor. That of course is my opinion.

Rounding hammers again if price is a concern Cliff Carroll's Maude 2lb. rounding hammer is a nice hammer for around 55.00$. The only down fall with Cliff'srounding hammers is that the faces are rather soft steel. However if you want the best go with Poor's rounding hammers hands down the best you can get. Again just my opinion.

I am in total agreement with Mr. Ruff. Jim Poor hammers are the best in my opinion. They will give you a lifetime of use. If price is a factor try NC or Mustad. They are very basic and fit the bill. I have used them both.

I agree with the others. My first choice is a Tom Hall hammer. Since they are no longer made I retired mine to a place of honored reverence and currently use a Blurton with a Poor as backup. I use the 10 oz. hammers and like either one almost as much as I do my Tom Hall.

For a rounding hammer, I don't know how you can do better than a 1.5 lb or 1.75 Flatland Forge hammer. Some might argue that they, like the driving hammers mentioned above, are on the pricey side. Considering how much we use these hammers, I find that opinion to be a bit short-sighted.

All that aside, you should consider making a road trip to you local supply house (preferably one that stocks these hammers) and get some 'hands-on' feeling for the tools. Or, find another farrier close to where you live who uses one or all of these tools and see if s/he'll let you come over and get a feel for the tools.

Nothing worse than spending big bucks and then finding out that you bought the wrong tool.

If you buy the Flatland Forge (Jim Poor) hammers and don't like them I will buy them from you.

I agree with everyone else. For driving hammers i use the 14 oz flatland forge and i use a 9 oz tom hall every once in awhile. For shaping hammers you can't beat jim poor's hammers. As far as keeping everything affordable you might want to look into a mustad driving hammer and a chip hunt shaping hammer. If you go the cheaper route you can modify the handles to where you like it and burn the handles.

I'll have to go w/ the horsehead. I have a NC and its a great hammer for the money. I use it secondary and use my horsehead always. I even put it in the truck seat to keep in warm.......lol

After using a friends I purchased one last year and what I have fell in love w/ is the serrated face. I don't have the issues of the hammer head slipping off the nail and catching a finger when a foot is jerked.

Good Luck

Thanks for the help... ok, the jim poor seems to have quite a strong following, and the horsehead looks very similar. I'm not sure about the blurton's nail in the side attachment to the handle, I've been told to be weary of hammers like this. Between these two what should I know. The horsehead is burned once mounted the handle and it has a serrated face... is there an advantage to this?

Is the jim poor roundign hammer really worth the 160 price tag?

Thanks for everyones input.

Jim Poors hammers are worth every last penny.

quick question....does a checkerboard face make a difference on the hammers? I have a blurton and it is a flat faced driver. Also why did who ever told you to stay away from nails in the side of hammers, say that?

Yes it does. You have less of a chance of the head slipping off the nail and I believe they drive straighter.

I was told to avoid hammers with a side nail to secure the head because, this farriers opinion, that they are more prone to loosen and fall off. She said that the nail will loosen easier and fall out, leaving the head to loosen. Just her opinion, she did recommend a jim poor hammer, and i think that is what i'll go with. Still thinking about a horsehead though... but I learned with a non-serrated face so I think my first hammer should not have it. An experiment to do down the orad when I have soem excess money :D .
