Tool Guide: Choosing a Hammer: The Bell Hammer

Bell hammer are uniquely versatile for striking chisels. Quite often used as a traditional carving tool, many wallers love these hammers when working with chisels. Unlike a typical square-headed hammer, the curved surface allows for good contact between the hammer and chisel from many angles, making striking a chisel from an  angle different than a straight blow more effective.

This hammer’s round head and unique bell shape promote better contact with the chisel while reducing the risks of misstrikes and chisel mushrooming.
