Hammers and Mallets – Tools for jewellery making
Hammers are the most basic of the jewellery smith’s tools. Without a hammer, you are not a jewellery smith. Most hammers have two faces that are differently sized or shaped; mallets have identical faces. Most hammers have straight shafts; the exception is the chasing hammer. Hammers can be used for several functions; some are specialized. The fundamental differences are this: there are hammers for striking metal and hammers for striking tools.
