Carver's Mallet

75.00

An essential tool for any woodcarver and one of the charter tools that inspired the founding of Handsome Tool Co. This is Sten’s own design and one he’s been using almost daily for nearly a decade. Mallets are found in many shapes and weights usually determined by the needs and preferences of the carver. Our traditional carvers mallet makes striking gouges easy and comfortable for long periods of time because of its medium yet adequate heft: about 14 oz. The head is glued up of five pieces and arranged so that the striking surface is entirely made of edge grain for more durability. The face is slightly crowned. The maple or oak head and walnut handle and pleasing classical lines make it a beautiful and functional addition to your workbench. Like the joiners mallet it can be used for regular chisel work and joinery too. However, is not meant for heavy striking like a joiners mallet or hammer.  

 Available also with a White Oak head. Although maple is quite standard, Oak can offer a pleasantly different dynamic: almost a vibration absorbing effect like a dead-blow hammer. Maple on the other hand has a little more of a bounce. 

Finished with a warm traditional shellac and wax.
