As you can see in the descriptions of the many hooped Japanese bench chisels listed above, hooped chisels are designed to be hit with a steel hammer. We sell 4 different weights of hammer. All the hammers are flat on one side and slightly crowned or rounded on the other. The rounded side is used for nailing, and either side can be used for malleting chisels. The 13oz (375 gm) hammer is our most popular size and is what I use for general work. The lighter 8oz (225 gm) hammer is a better choice for light, smaller work. The larger sizes are appropriate for large work, framing, and for really hard woods. Personally, I find both larger sizes too heavy and fatiguing. I suppose that's because I'm used to doing casework, and the control of the 13oz hammer is a good compromise between power and control.
