Finally a hand Turned real wooden masons mallet with real weight!! Designed by stonemasons for stonemasons!
THIS LISTING IS FOR A UNIQUE ANDLEE STONE MASONS OR CARVERS MALLET WITH A BROWN IVORY WOOD CENTRE
5" 125mm 2lb -4oz/1kg also available!!
Head 95mm deep, Handle 130mm deep.
IF THIS WERE MADE ENTIRELY FROM BEECH IT WOULD WEIGH LESS THAN 1.7lbs/800g for a 5" mallet!
Andlee Mallets have a unique laminated head made from hand selected hardwoods. This mallet has an African hardwood 2" centre band where the density is needed most!! It is sandwiched between two thinner layers of English Beech to give a perfect weight. Brown Ivorywood or Birdplum is a beautiful & extremely durable dense hardwood (975g/cubic ltr)
NB The direction of the grain in each layer is carefully placed in perfect alignment so that all three can take the impact of a mallet headed chisel on the end grain on the same face of the mallet. Therefore with proper use & care it will last you a lifetime.
The outer layers are made from the traditional choice for masons mallets English Beech. All hardwoods used are sourced from sustainably managed forests in England and Mozambique.
The handle is made from ash for a bit of bounce & are also unique to Andlee much wider and more comfortable than what you may be familiar with especially if you've been using a mass produced plastic mallet. They taper from approx 33 to 45mm for extra comfort and are finished with oil not polyurethane varnish for a better grip and more natural feel.
Every Andlee mallet is unique due to being handturned by an experienced craftsman from natural materials, Therefore I've included a lot of photos to explain the shape & detail as well as a nasty plastic mallet for comparison, but don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
