With three working surfaces and an insulated handle, this French veneer hammer retains heat well for glue work.
The 3-3/8" polished brass face has a semi-circular edge that eliminates abrasion, snagging, and staining problems on wood reactive to iron (such as oak) when smoothing out trapped air and excess glue. The opposed face is belled for work on small pieces and for driving veneer nails. The third work surface (the 1" handle tip) is wedge-shaped for work in difficult-to-reach areas; it is not intended for veneer removal.
Measures about 10-1/2" long.
A leather sheath protects the brass face while in storage.
