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.

Many thanks David for donating all the pen making equipment, which I will deliver to the wood shed at Phoenix House run by Help 4 Heroes. This donation will enable the shed to help military veterans who have been injured both physically and mentally whilst serving their country. Many of these heroes have not interacted with others for many years. The wood shed tries to bring these guys and girls together and break through some of the barriers which stop this interaction. It will also enable many ot them to try turning for the first time. I know first hand what its like to find that one thing which helps turn lives around. Once again David from one veteran to another, Thank You, you may have just saved some lives.
Someone who found turning and it changed my life. - John Grant
