Like an giant blue marshmellow Review by Amazon

I thought about giving this tool 4 stars because it is so soft, but that would be wrong because it is awesome at protecting your product. Be advised it is REALLY soft, almost gushy and I can really wind up and wail on the furniture pieces I make and install without ever a hint of damage. Of the three choices, I purchased the heaviest mallet which for me was perfect. If anything, it may be too light and I have to resort to another of my dead blow mallets to persuade more difficult pieces in place. All in all, an excellent tool in my arsenal and a must-have for fine furniture assembly. (Posted on 12/5/2017)

Love the product and purchased all 3 sizes though I now find myself using mostly the larger size hammer.

These work so much better than the typical rubber mallets that are to firm and don't contour to the shape of the surface being impacted.

I use these for applying Sandblast mask/stencil to rough natural stone and it works perfectly getting the mask/stencil into all the crevaces. Huge time savings over the previous method of using a wire wheel. (Posted on 12/5/2017)

If your a woodworker an looking for something to urge dovetails together and other assembly tasks this is perfect. Much better than a traditional "hard" dead blow mallet. There is a bit more bounce than a traditional dead blow , but it truly does prevent ANY wood damage, even if you wail away much harder than you really should be doing. You can even hit irregular surfaces. It conforms to the surface on impact and does not seem to cause any harm. Pretty amazing. (Posted on 12/5/2017)
Terrific dead blow mallet for cabinet carpentry Review by Amazon

This is a great deadblow mallet. I bought it for use in assembling cabinets for a face-frame cabinet project. The size of the head and density of it makes for solid assured persuasion of the subject parts, with virtually no bounce. I particularly like it as an alternative to a rubber mallet, which is a little hard for the finished wood parts, and as an alternative to denser car-style deadblow hammers, which still present a risk of denting since the heads are smaller than this one. If you have seen Sorbothane shoe inserts, then you know the feel of this kind of material. It is dense and a little softer than rubber, but with terrific damping.

I imagine this would be useful in the glass shop as well. I know someone who works with stained glass that can give some feedback for that application. (Posted on 12/5/2017)
BEST SOFT HAMMERS Review by Amazon
Price

Bought two hammers, the small and mid sized. They are the best SOFT hammers I have ever used. They were advertised in some woodworking magizines, but I had a difficult time finding out where to purchase them. Finally located them in AMAZON. They are VERY SOFT and not too light. When assembling wood projects they are the best there is! Have used wooden and other soft nose hammers and they have left dents even with light blows....THESE DO NOT!! I could strike soft wood with a very heavy blow and it might break the board but will not leave a DENT! These hammers are intended for finish work not heavy construction or masonry. They will work very well for sheet metal and auto wheel covers/ hub caps. (Posted on 12/5/2017)

I have the 12oz (medium) hammer and absolutely love it! I use it regularly in my custom woodworking shop while performing glue-ups and general assembly of wood parts. It has proven to be highly durable and has never left a mark- which is vital for my use of it. (Posted on 12/5/2017)
Amazing Mallet Review by Amazon

I use this Sorbothane mallet for so more things than I ever thought. I initially got the mallet to assist with installing some kitchen cabinetry. Fast forward the mallet has now become a staple in my tool box for example the other day I was hanging a mirror using sort of a channel bracket and needed to "tap" the mirror into place, well any other hammer would have nicked up the frame or worse broke the mirror, not this mallet worked like a charm (although you could still probably break the mirror with it). Basically this un-expecting mallet has proven to be a very useful little tool (Posted on 12/5/2017)

I do a lot of tile work and most mallets are too hard to set tile. This mallet applies enough force to set it without marring or cracking the tile! Love it! (Posted on 12/5/2017)

Not rubber, much softer. Very good where a heavy but gentle nudge is required. Does not mar. Have used mostly to tap wood joints together. (Posted on 12/5/2017)
