The cylindrical mallets work very well on chisels. The curved surface seems transfer energy into the chisel without glancing off even when you don’t hit exactly square. A lot of chisels have a domed head and this design seems to work well on them. They are also known as chisel mallets.
I have both the round and flat mallets and use them both. The chisel mallet on chisels and the flat surfaced on flatter surfaces.
