Corin's journey began in 2002, crafting knives from blade blanks and later expanding his expertise to heat treating. But blade warpage posed a persistent challenge during the heat-treating process. Traditional methods for straightening blades often came with drawbacks like the risk of damage or extensive time investment. This all changed in 2019 when ABS Mastersmith Rodrigo Sfreddo unveiled a game-changing technique at the Australian Blade Symposium. This revelation marked the dawn of a new era in blade straightening.

Tungsten Carbide Hammers: A Marvel of Ingenuity

Inspired by Rodrigo's technique, Corin embarked on a mission to create the ultimate tool for blade straightening: Tungsten Carbide Hammers. Crafted with precision, these hammers feature a brass body, denser than steel, combined with an ample supply of Tungsten Carbide. This unique composition grants them surprising heft, providing the perfect balance of force and finesse required for blade straightening.

The crowning achievement lies in the carbide flat face, an innovation that redefines the hammer's versatility. Beyond blade straightening, the carbide flat face excels in tasks like riveting pins and working with hardened tangs. This remarkable tool transcends its initial purpose, gaining recognition from diverse craftsmen, including knifemakers, toolmakers, jewelry makers, watchmakers, woodworkers, and artisans of all trades.
