The Pedal Hammer at Pieh Tool




Recently I visited the Pieh Tool website and was looking over some tools and found the page relating to the pedal hammer I developed. The tool is available there for a try out. That would be handy for those in the southwest. http://www.piehtoolco.com/contents/en-us/d1519.html


Pieh tool is located in Camp Verde, Arizona near Sedona.


Gordon Williams is the resident blacksmithing instructor. I had the pleasure of watching him demonstrate at a BAM conference several years ago. I learned a lot about technique and he also was very entertaining and had several good business tips.


You can find out more information about his classes at

I use the pedal hammer a lot for striking detail lines in botanicals. The dogwood motif napkin holder pictured is a recent example.
