This rawhide mallet, with a head made from the highest grade water-buffalo hide and a handle of top-grade hickory handle, is an excellent choice for forming, bending and flattening metal by hammering directly on its surface. Mallets are defined by their large heads and broad, flat faces. The rawhide surface won’t score or mar the metal, reducing the time needed for finishing.
Rawhide mallets are glued and sealed in the factory, leaving them hardened from the process so that a new mallet easily mars metal workpieces. To get the best results from your rawhide mallet, we recommend that you break in the head before using it on your metal.
• All rawhide mallet heads should be broken-in (conditioned and softened) before using them on metal workpieces to ensure that they won’t mar metal.
