Product Details

With its short cylindrical shaped head, this chisel hammer is designed for accuracy. As the head is very short, the mass of the head is kept closer to the centre line of the handle giving excellent control of the head and superior accuracy in striking. The steel head is hand forged and undergoes and is specially hardened to make the outside of the head hard whilst keeping the core soft allowing more energy to transfer to the chisel and the core to absorb the recoil. Featuring a flat ground face and one crowned face, the hammer head is mounted on a 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.
