description

Hammer (approx. 600-1000 gr) of which the cylindrical head (approx. 7-8 cm diameter) is made of leather, with a metal intermediate piece. It is often possible to screw caps of different materials (rubber, nylon) onto the intermediate piece. The handle is made of wood, plastic or metal.

Another lighter model has a cylindrical head that is completely wrapped in leather.

The leather hammer is used for machining material whose surface must not be damaged.
