Blue Spruce Round Mallets feature a curly maple head infused with a tough polymer resin that increases the density of the maple by 80%. The infused head puts more “smack” into less space than simple wooden headed mallets. In addition to concentrating power, the resin protects the wood fibers from compression. This beautiful tool will still look beautiful after chopping hundreds of dovetails and mortises.
What you can’t see, but you will definitely feel, is how the head and handle are joined. A machined steel rod extends deep into both sections. The joining shaft is epoxied in place, adding mass and rigidity to the mallet.
The Blue Spruce Toolworks Round Mallet is available in two sizes…13-ounce and 16-ounce. In both sizes you have your choice of European Beech, Cocobolo or African Blackwood for the handle, either a bright brass or black ceramic coated ferrule, and curly maple or highly figured curly maple for the head.
Please note that due to current CITES regulations we are unable to ship African Blackwood, Cocobolo and other Rosewoods or dalbergia outside of the USA. Please do not order these options if your final shipping destination is not in the USA. Thank you for your understanding.
