The-Real-Link After several years in development, this is now my newest Ocarina of Time prop! Worthy of being found in the Fire Temple, this prop has turned out beyond expectations.

All preliminary designs in AutoCAD, 3ds Max, Premiere Videography, and structural/density connections and diagrams were designed by me. Hammer fabricated through Ore Creek Metalworkz. The steel came from Larry Stevens' (father of Hellsingripvan) plant about four months before he was involved in a fatal truck accident. Thanks for the help, Larry.

Various types of tool steels were used along with thick 1/4" ASTM36 plate for the frame. Handle features recessed ball bearings and 3oz vegetable tanned leather discs compressed and lacquered for durability. The top column ornament features the Goron's Crest for embellishment though more carvings and designs will be added to the hammer later on. Timeframe from concept to completion was approximately 3 years, generally due to difficulty in working with the amount of metal involved and working out design issues from artwork to reality. Weight is a comfortable 35 lbs :)
