I have an old aquantance, a blacksmith and master metalsmith in
general who has done workshops on the technique. You’d love the
marvelous chasing hammers he makes, hand forged, inlayed and
chamfered with exquisite detail. Here’s his name and number. If he
is no longer at that address, ask to speak to Jim Wallace, he can
probably provide a current address.
