• Versatile hammer to suit a range of applications


A ball-peen hammer is sometimes known as a machinist's hammer, due to its common use in metalworking. As the pein hammer's head is hardened, its striking face is harder than a standard claw hammer, they are more suited to driving chisels and rivets, and were traditionally used for hardening metal by impact in metal fabrication processes. The ball end of the hammer is suitable for more controlled 'glancing blows' where precision is needed, such as expanding metal to work out dents.

The ball pein hammer is useful for:

• Peening rivets
• Metal forging
• Jewellery making
• Removing dents
• Striking punches

Is the head interchangeable?

What is the difference between ball-pein and cross-pein?

Cross-pein refers to the head horizontal to the handle, typically used by blacksmiths to stretch material with lateral expansion. A ball-pein has a round head used for hammering and shaping sheet metal, rounding off the edges or closing rivets.

What is the advantage of hickory wood handles?

Hickory is ideal for high-impact short-handled tools, as it is rigid and shock absorbing ensuring excellent user comfort and control. Tools with a hickory shaft are very durable and offer excellent impact resistance.
