Brass mallets are good for using with disc cutters, dapping sets, center punches, and other large striking tools. The brass head ensures a strong dead-weight strike that will not bounce or slide. Brass also ensures that your striking tools will not get malformed, which would result should a steel hammer be used on them. Hammer measures 9.5x2.5x1.5" (24.1x6.4x3.8 cm). Striking face measures 1.25" (31.8 mm) diameter. Head weighs 2 lb (907 g).
