what are you mainly “striking” and “hammering” in your style of woodworking ?

- John Smith

Chisels mostly John, for the types of hammers I am thinking of here. Lot’s of practice driving nails, and I have hammers for all of that. Mostly woodworking. To be honest I use the stubby hammers made famous by By Kevin

My other current go to is just a round of brass about 5” long by 1” diameter, no handle. I just grasp it and go. I have a few assorted small hammers for pins, adjusting plane blades on my Kana. Odds and ends.

Truth be told I’m not feeling I need to have other than I am currently using, just was drawn to some of the hand made ones I have been seeing. So many of them have rounded striking faces.
