I have a planishing hammer that strikes my through-tang steel-ended Everlastings, and there’s the modern Fat Max versions still out there. Wood mallet for wood-handled socket chisels to extend the life of the hornbeam handles.

A mallet head that’s angled is prefera le, as stated above. When fitting pieces, I use a scrap block so the hammer (Any Kind) doesn’t strike the work directly.
