I prefer a carver’s style mallet for chisel work.  With properly sharpened chisels a medium sized mallet does the job without excessive fatigue to the craftsman. 

Mallets I owned had smooth lacquered handles that had to be held tightly to prevent them from slipping.  A long day of chopping mortises or dovetails would leave my hand and wrist sore.  My solution was to tape the handle with sports tape like a hockey stick.  This allows me to use a relaxed grip with a lot less fatigue. 

We have been making our mallets for more than ten years and have recently changed to a resin impregnated maple head, making it harder and heavier than the previous woods.  I think you will be pleasantly surprised at how comfortable my mallet is over the course of a long day in the shop.

  • Resin impregnated Maple head.

  • The handle goes through the head, glued and held with two #12 by 1-1/2" coarse thread screws that straddle the joint line securing the head to the handle.

  • Handle shape and hockey grip tape make it comfortable to hold with a relaxed grip.  We tape the handle for you.

  • Slight taper of the head improves the striking angle of the head.

  • There will always be a slight variation from mallet to mallet since we turn these by hand on the lathe.

  • Available in two sizes: Regular and Small.

  • Small mallet averages 350 grams, head is 2-1/2"diameter by 4" and overall length is 9-1/2"
