Or pound with one of those, whatcha call it? Pinning hammers? Peel hammers? The ones with the rounded striking surface. This+Rubber+Chisel+Fucking around with it = art.

Not to get too far off-topic here, but yes.
AND, you'll find them all spelled "pein" instead of "peen" sometimes, too. And in my circles, a pein hammer with the narrow face parallel to the handle is a "straight-pein" rather than "long peen". But obviously, these things vary from place to place.
Thought I'd chime in, because so often the key to finding what you need is knowing its name!
