Dressing Hammer faces is an important skill in blacksmithing. This is more true today than it was in the past. In the past even the most common factory hammers were carefully machine and hand dressed to the proper profile. Today many are sold rough dressed (heavy chamfers only) or are very poorly dressed by untrained low wage workers.
