This mallet can be used with a traditional grip or it can be nestled in the palm of your hand to exactly control the force used, a position preferred by carvers and sculptors or anyone doing work finer than mortising.
Unique to this type of mallet, the brass head has a blind threaded connection rather than a through hole for the handle; this gives the same feel and force to the 1 5/8" diameter top as the sides. The final turning of the handle is done after the handle is mounted, ensuring a perfectly smooth transition between brass head and cherry wood handle.
At 1 1/4 lb with an overall length of 6", it is as effective as it is graceful.
Made in Canada.
