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 for the speedy replacements for the missing parts of my pen kits. I wasn't really expecting a complete replacement of the entire kits, nor so soon! A truly excellent example of customer service. - Paul Williams
