Really nice looking mallet. What do you use the narrow end for? Looks like it is made for a specific job.

Very nice. How did you fit the chrome? epoxy or are they just pressed in?

Nice hammer Oscar. I like the shape but was wondering what you will hit with it?

Great piece of functional art Oscar. Looks like something that will only get better looking with use. The pins are a nice touch too. Don’t recall having ever seen that approach before. Thanks for posting this!

Basically it was thought to be used in tight spaces, it was initially thought to use some epoxy but the hole remained perfect so no need of any glue simply enter by pressure, Bolts give more weight to the head end, Besides they look very nice.
