Split-Head Rawhide Mallets


Original split-head rawhide mallets Made in Maine by Garland Manufacturing Co., known around the world for their high-quality tools. This is their split-head design, which allows you to swap out worn rawhide striking faces when you feel like it. Just loosen the nut under the hammer head, swap out the faces, and get back to work.  Here at BV we clamp the big nut in our bench vise and then turn the entire mallet head.  Hickory handle will take a lot of whacking, but can be replaced if you overdo it there, Hercules.  Some of these mallets and faces are curently out of stock; the drop-down will show you what’s available.  Global Mallet-Demic or something like that.
