ImpressArt 2 lb Signature Ergo-Angle™ Metal Stamping Hammer
The head of this hammer will get a bit dinged up as you stamp with it. That is ok, it will still function just fine. The 'give' or slight softness of the face of the mallet is what allows for an even blow, no matter where you are hitting the stamp against the face of the hammer. This is what makes these brass head mallets different from other hammers, and perfect for stamping.
If you experience flaking from your mallet, don't worry about it. Your mallet is tough! These are warrior wounds showing what a tough stamper you really are! We recommend you wear safety goggles or protective eye wear when hammering or using other tools.
