Ideal for striking
chisels and woodcarving tools, this hammer's head shape prevents the chisel
from being struck off-center, causing a split chisel handle. The solid brass head and contoured
handle make this an elegant and practical mallet that feels secure and
comfortable in your hand.
The 8" compact length allows a finesse touch for delicate projects, but the hammer is also
equally adept at exerting more force as required due to its 24-ounce weight. There is no rebound, so every bit of energy you put into a strike goes straight to the tool in hand. You don't have to swing your arm, just let your wrist pivot to strike a blow as powerfully (or as gently) as needed.
