Sometimes, a bigger hammer is the best solution to a problem.
This mallet has two faces of different hardnesses – a white face of ultra-dense polymer (“superplastic”) with high-impact resistance best suited for use on harder materials, and a blue face of softer, non-marring TPE plastic that’s more forgiving on softwoods and materials that call for a gentler touch. The soft face compresses slightly on impact, remaining in contact for a fraction of a second, delivering a smoother transmission of force at the expense of a slightly “bouncy” feel.
Each 30mm diameter face is highly durable, but spare replacement faces are offered should you damage or wear one out. The faces mount on a cast-iron head attached to a lacquered acacia handle. The mallet measures 11 1/2" and weighs just under 3/4 lb.
