Blue Spruce round mallet
« on: July 09, 2020, 10:56 PM »
Decided to treat myself to a Blue Spruce round mallet choosing African blackwood for the handle.  Despite its size, its even slightly heavier than the square beech mallet you can see in the picture which I've used for several years.  I've only done some test chopping with it, but I like how dense and solid it is with the acrylic infused head and the embedded steel rod that joins the head to the handle.

This is a real nice mallet. Did you pick the 13 or 16oz?

Yesss! It is beautiful and super functional! I got that size in Cocobolo as well as the larger flat faced version that is similar to your beech mallet. It is super nice as well. It has one flat wooden face and one flat leather face.

@Mario Turcot It's the larger 16oz one.   I don't do any carving, so I figured the lighter one would be more delicate than I needed.  I find the weight and balance of the 16oz to be excellent so far.
