    Can I use a flatter hammer to remove hammer marks from the metal I’m working?

      You can use a flatter after the main forging is done. You will need to be comfortable with holding the material and the flatter then striking the back of the hammer. It’s a bit dificult without a striker or a hold down but it makes for less sanding and grinding if you are going for a nice finish.
      There is a post here about hold downs that are easy to make if you don’t have one already. https://daddystayshome.com/hooks-hold-downs-and-a-quiet-anvil/
