Product Details

Created for perfect balance in use, this carpenter-s hammer has bell shaped ends and slightly crowned striking faces. The head is forged from tool steel and the faces are specially hardened to give a greater transference of energy from the face to the item being struck. The core of the head is unhardened to act as a shock absorber during impact which results in the user feeling less recoil from the strike. This hammer can be used for striking Japanese chisels or for driving nails. The head is mounted on a solid, shaped Japanese white oak handle. Overall length 325mm.

In Japanese woodworking, metal headed hammers are used for everything from driving chisels and carving tools to setting plane irons and assembling joints. The construction of Japanese hammers differs greatly to the hammers familiar to us in the West making them much more effective for their size. Special hardening processes combined with head shape and handle length ensures that more of the energy from the hammer is transfered to the item being struck with considerably less recoil. This results in less user fatigue and greater comfort in use.
