When a Gentle Tap Won’t Do
Its purpose is implicit in the name: hammering away at anything that requires a lot of force. Traditionally, this steel mallet is called a “Persuader” mallet and apparently for obvious reasons. At almost 10 lbs., it is heavy enough to take on demolition work or heavy landscaping jobs like breaking up concrete patios or even rocks. For all types of everyday chores, this heavy mallet works best for splitting logs with a wedge or when hammering down fence/garden posts.
This hammer features a painted-steel, cross-peen head that is 2-½” square and 7” long. The handle is 21” long. Thor could swing this with one hand, but mere mortals might want to use two.
