Wood Carving Mallets with urethane “quiet heads”, plain hardwood heads in addition to brass heads for greater control when using mid and full size carving gouges and chisels.
There are many wood carvers that believe carving mallets are for ‘larger jobs’. Not so!
Mallets offer greater control.
There is no doubt that larger tools are easier to use when struck with a good quality mallet. A huge benefit of using a mallet, however is the control it offers. How often have you been ‘pushing’ gouge or chisel and suddenly have it slip? Mallets eliminate such mishaps to a huge extent.
Urethane Head Carving Mallets mallets are the best solution to the special needs of sculptors. The head contained within a durable polyurethane is unbreakable. Because of its elasticity, without being too soft, is also extremely quiet and effective. The elasticity acts to cushion the blows and reduce stress on the wrist of the sculptor. Our All-wood mallets offer a less expensive choice. And our beautiful Brass Head Mino-Mallets for detail work are a pleasure to use.
