German Carving Mallets

The traditional bell shaped mallet used by generations of European craftsmen is now available to American carvers. The head is neatly and accurately turned from a solid piece of kiln dried hornbeam. The ash handle extends all the way through the head and is secured with a wedged joint at the bottom. The compact size, comfortable handle and perfect balance make this a tool you will use with pleasure and pride for years to come.

500 gram – Weight 16 oz, overall length 9″, head Diameter 3 1/2″

The 500 gram mallet is great for average size projects where control is more important than heavy stock removal.
