If I'm honest, the hammer finish was a bodge to cover a noob error. It had a quite deep mark from the vice jaws too high on the flats to erase without making it a full flat grind. I just whacked it a few hundred times with a ball pein until it looked more or less even, before any ht.

I guess its 'mock forged' haha.
