This is a small, but handy mallet for shop use. Just right for using with a chisel or to tap on something needing moved slightly into place. The price is right and it is handy on the workbench.

Pretty nice. Small enough to fit into the somewhat-oversized tool roll I use for my carving chisels. Quality is fine. About a simple a tool as it gets.

The one thing that annoys me is that grotesque "SHOP FOX" stenciled across the crown in black letters. I took some abrasive paper and sanded that garbage off. Wouldn't have minded a nice engraved logo. Used to be a time when companies took great care that their branding devices (logos, letting, etc) were aesthetically pleasing.

Of course, I guess that's the age we live in- where one factory in China makes something and 100 different 'wholesalers' rebrand it with their own name for retail sale. As such, the sum effort of their brand is black letters hastily stenciled across whatever space is available.

Still, picky rant aside, you won't regret buying this. Holds well in the hand, strikes well. I don't mind buying simple stuff from the Orient (hammers, tool trays, etc). If any precision is involved, I generally stuck with brands of known quality standards.

Use this where ever i have to "tap" a steel surface and do not want to leave a mark or ding the surface. Perfect for adjusting plane iron reveal in wood planes.

This is exactly what I needed for some carving I'm doing and this product arrived fast! Good quality, good heft for 8oz!

I am going to go out out a limb here and suggest most are using this wrong. As a mallet with such a short handle and using the curved surface as a striking edge it is always going to have off axis blows. I use it as a drop hammer with the flat surface for striking and I can control the force with good precision. A mallet/hammer uses the handle length as a force multiplier, I do not think was ever the intent for this tool. Try it this way and I think you will appreciate a totally different tool.

Perfect mini mallet for my toolbox. I'm going to put some blue loctite on the threads to prevent the brass head from coming loose.

Both the 8 and 12 ounce versions of these are really nice, particularly for the price. Got these for carving and fine chisel work where I plan to choke up on the head and use it to rap the chisel butts with a lot of control. They work great for my working style.

The handles on mine were unfinished, which is fine. Saves me having to scrape them down for a finish I like. If that bothers you, beware. Also, these are small heads with very short handles. I don't know if they would satisfy someone looking to "swing" it like standard size mallets and hammers. You won't be carving any totem poles from logs with these. For me, fit and "finish" are fine and I recommend them.

Decent, But had to sand the handle and the brass. A little touch up and it looks great. It works
