Here is an engraving hammer.
This is a very special shape, both for the head and the handle.
It is used for engraving with chisels, you need very frequent and light taps, and the handle must be very comfortable in the palm, hence this pear shape at the end.
The head is large, for avoiding bad or missed hits on the chisel.
The head has been turned from XC35 steel. It has a sort of bell shape and weighs 80g.
The handle is from ash, the top is wood turned,and the bottom is carved.
