"Good value and excellent weight for our activity!
This weight of mallet is far more effective than the lighter models.

Superb slab persuader

"I wanted a rubber hammer to help with levelling paving slabs - this was just right - good weight so less effort to use. Did the job just fine and excellent value for maney"

"Bought this to help relay my patio. Made the job relatively quick and simple. Strong and well balanced, the rubber is hardly marked after laying 24 paving stones. Great buy!"

slender shaft
30 Aug 2014
By camelb
, Northamptonshire
"Basic indispensable tool for many applications. Unfortunately the handle is not thick enough for the weight of the head so does not provide sufficiently secure grip even for my relatively small hands. Hopefully, being Ash, the shaft should survive reasonably well.
My assumption is that this is just another situation where the design is developed by someone who is not a tool user.
Predictably it is a fraction of the price of a Thor so this ensures its good value.

Bad Handle

"Mallet weight is great but the handle would be better fitted to a pin hammer way to thin a shaft to get a decent grip of a mallet this weight unless you've got a very small hand."

Lightweight heavy mallet!
26 Apr 2013
By Gardenmaker
, Worcester
"I always thought a mallet was a mallet, but having recently mislaid my old trusty rubber mallet I needed one quickly and purchased one of these. While the head has a nice weight for giving slabs a good belt, the handle is like a matchstick - far too thin to be comfortable to use and doesn't give you any confidence. It looks and feels like it belongs in a kids toy box!
Having said that, it did the job, fine if your doing a one-off job, but I wouldn't rely on it for professional use, go and find one with a decent handle.

"Probably the worst rubber mallet I've bought. Another reviewer mentioned the skinny handle, though we've never broken one, they're not comfortable. We wind some handle tape on them. The head constantly moves and comes loose, and the rubber splits. They get a hard life in the brewery, and only last for one week, if we're lucky. By contrast, a Thor branded mallet will give us a couple of month's service."

"I used this mallet to level gravel boards into soil, I also used it to drive the stakes into the soil that the gravel boards got screwed to, it did the job well at first but, the head became loose and I had to keep realigning it to carry on with my work."
