Recently I started looking for a mallet for chopping mortises and dovetails. I looked at a lot of different mallets. I never really liked the traditional mallets like this one. When I looked at them in the stores, they always seemed too big for their weight. Not too long ago Christopher Schwarz talked about this mallet on his blog. He talked about the same things I didn’t like about these type of mallets. He then came across this mallet and it was different. They make these mallets and then soak them in linseed oil to give them more weight. The mallet is “heavy” for its size and is comfortable to use. I have been using the mallet to clean up some mortises for my new workbench. It has been a pleasure to use.
