Product Details

Used for striking Japanese chisels as well as for general nailing, this square headed genno hammer has a flat ground face and a crowned striking face. Both of these faces are hardened to give a more efficient transference of energy between the hammer face and the object being struck. The rest of the head between the two faces remains unhardened allowing it to absorb the recoil of the impact minimising the shock passed back to the user. This makes the hammer more comfortable to use over extended periods of time. The head is mounted on a very strong Japanese white oak handle. Overall length 330mm.

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.
