The Nordic Forge rounding hammers are great buys.  I have two, a 1 1/2#, a 2#.  That brand can be found at various places on the entrynet.  The "Hammer Source" has some in stock I believe.  Some have an option to get a heat treated, sometimes called "hardened" in the description for a few bucks more...well worth it.  The faces hold up better than a soft hammer.  Prices I've seen usually in the $40-$50 range.  The 2# one is my go-to forging hammer.  I've had mine for over 7 10 years now and not a complaint.
