This deadblow mallet is ideal for bending, forging, shaping and flattening metal without marring. The hollow head features two flat nylon faces and is filled with steel shot; with each blow, the shot slides from one end of the head to the other, maximizing the power of the strike, stabilizing the impact and reducing rebound and reverberation back into the hand and arm. Mallets are defined by their large heads and broad, flat faces. The handle is made of durable hickory wood. The durable, high-impact white nylon faces form and shape without marring metal, minimizing the finishing time required afterward.
