It goes without saying that you have to hit your chisel with something. Some people use round sculptor's mallets which are turned out of tropical hardwoods. In Japan they use steel hammers on hooped chisels, and in Vietnam they use a tapered piece of wood. I was taught using an English mallet like this one. Ultimately it doesn't matter much what you use, but the handle should be the correct length for you and the work you are doing. This mallet is the classic joinery mallet and will give you good leverage and a lot of control. It's perfect for cabinetwork and joinery. Beech, 12 Inches long. Made in England.

Better than expected

By: Michael O’Donnell (Nov, 2017)

I came to Tools for working wood to purchase a Ray Iles Mortise chisel, and purchased this mallet as well, since I wanted to try a different one and this was cheaper than amazon or my local box store. Some things are bigger in real life than on the internet and thus mallet is an example. It seemed big when I opened the box, but after a quick sand of the grip to take off some of the protective finish, this mallet felt much better than expected. I’m completely satisfied with it. Mine weighs 18 oz. all in. Honestly, I thought tools for working wood was a boutique tool dealer, and while I think boutique tools are awesome and inspirational to use, I use my tools professionally and can’t justify art for art’s sake. This mallet indicates to me that tools for working wood is in the business of selling the best tools they can find, regardless of whether they are boutique or humble. Also they shipped right away.

much better than a round mallet

By: JohnG (Dec, 2015)

I used a round headed mallet for years. I finally got tired of they way it would glance off of the chisel head if I didn't hit it right. This one has saved my knuckles from abuse. A bonus is that it won't roll off the workbench! I use the round mallet for ice crushing.
