Also known as a carpenter's mallet, this traditional joiner's mallet is most useful for tapping home joints and carcass assemblies, and for driving chisels. Since we all swing in an arced motion, the face of the mallet is tapered so it meets the target with a flat faced blow. You'll have few worries about the head ever loosening. The handle and head socket have matching tapers so that centrifugal force tightens it every time it's used. Made from solid European beech. Mallet measures approximately 6" long x 3-5/8" high x 2-1/8" thick. The striking face measures 2-/18 wide by 3-1/4" tall. The overall length of the handle is 14". Weighs approximately 1.5 lbs.

This is a great mallet. Put a couple coats of boiled linseed oil on it and you have the perfect weight for chopping mortices. Hartville has the best price that I've seen.
