The Veritas Journeyman’s Brass Mallet can be used with a traditional grip or can be nestled in the palm of your hand to exactly control the force used - a position preferred by carvers doing finer work than mortising.
Unique to this type of mallet, the brass head has a threaded connection rather than a through hole on the handle.
This gives the same fell and force to the 1 5/8" diameter top of the sides. The final turning of the handle is done after the handle is mounted, ensuring a perfectly smooth head on cherry wood handle.
Just a note to thank you for rearranging the delivery to me and for your generosity regarding the VCI tool guard. If only all firms were to perform as well as yours life would be so much easier.
