New Ultra-Lightweight Carving Mallet Old Lignum Vitae & Leadwood
A handmade gorgeous very unique, ultra lightweight solid carver’s mallet in old 1950’s lignum vitae wood with a Leadwood handle. Beautiful, smooth to the touch and full of character. Great to add to your set of mallets from me. Ergonomically designed to be a great fit in the hand. This mallet is ideal for fine works, detail and lettering. No visible checks although checks are normal for old lignum vitae and just add to the natural character.
It gives more of a hit than you would imaging but gives you more control, 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 wax 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 wood with a wow factor. A lot of work goes into making the mallets. The price of vintage lignum vitae has sky rocketed as it becomes increasingly rare. Size
This is a new size introduced by me by request. The overall size of this gorgeous ultra lightweight mallet is approx. 115mm or 4 and 1/2 inches in length end to end. There other pictures are to give perspective on this size of mallet compared to my range available. Weight 114 gms or 4 ounces. A great weight for a long day of use and for the finer, detailed work.
