Wooden mallets

Standard Kizuchi

Handcrafted from kashi (Japanese oak), these wooden mallets are only used with tools that have a metal ring at the end of the handle, like the Asagata, Fukagata and Soai Nomi. Using a mallet on tools with plain wooden handles can cause the handle to split and ruin the tool.

The distinctive "clack" as a mallet strikes the nomi handle is one of the most pleasant sounds in carving a wood block. These mallets are well balanced and have a hole in the handle for hanging.

The deluxe model has a wooden wedge inserted in the part of the handle that extends beyond the mallet head to ensure a tight fit, and the craftsmanship is generally superior.
