Carving Mallet Lightweight Old Lignum Vitae & English Walnut
Lightweight Solid Carver’s Mallet in dense, old real rich vintage Lignum Vitae. Beautiful and strong made from one of the hardest toughest timbers ideal for this purpose. Antique in age, rich in its own history. Beautiful, smooth to the touch and full of character. Old lignum vitae is becoming increasingly rare and the price of the lignum vitae has sky rocketed. There are hardly any visible checks, which is usual for lignum vitae of this age and when they are there, this does not detract from its strength and beauty in any way. Gorgeous tool, interesting and unique grain. Vintage lignum vitae is getting harder to get hold of and increasingly expensive which affects the cost. The handle is made from gorgeous English Walnut.
Ergonomically designed by me to be a great fit in the hand-these mallets and will have a really good wallop when required. They have a great sweet spot, made by someone who knows because they use them! The handles goes right through to the end of the ball and are wedged for extra strength. Designed and made by me in Shropshire and not mass produced. Each of my wood carver’s mallets is of course, slightly different and unique beautifully and lovingly finished with oil so the natural colour of the wood can speak for itself. Made by someone who carves and has done stone masonry so really knows the requirements of their tools. An ideal gift for anyone who loves the unique richness and quality of the grain and colours of natural wooden items with a wow factor. A great gift for a carver! My discrete logo is on the top of the handles so you know you have a Tommy Woodpecker Woodworks original. A lot of work also goes into making the mallets. Great pair for a carving school or someone training in stone masonary or carving. Great Gift
This tool in the right hands with normal carver’s use will last and last. A great gift for a carver! Size
