- Chasing Hammers have a large face for flattening.
- This face is 25mm (1") in diameter.
- There is a ball-peen side for riveting and metal design (the "hammered" look).
- The forged head is wedge mounted on a wooden handle.
This hammer is slightly convex so there is a large striking area but the edges are smooth. Totally flat chasing hammers might mar the edges of your metal which is why we like this guy.
Do not use this hammer for stamping, the back of the shanks will mar your hammer. For stamping, you want just a big ol' nail pounding hammer (at least 16 ounces).

Love this!!! Easy to use and delivers great results. Exactly what I was looking for!!
I love this video. I saw charms with the "fancy" edge and kept trying to find them in different shops. Finally, I clicked on the chasing hammer and it brought me to the video. I have used this on so many of my stamped blanks and everyone comments on the edge. It is the perfect finish to any edge. I also have used it for adding texture to a blank that is going to have a single initial. Lisa is right - texture the blank before you stamp or you will lose the effect of the stamping. So many wonderful videos to watch and learn and this is only one.
I absolutely love this chasing hammer! I live in Canada and purchased two other chasing hammers before this one, and I returned them both. This one has amazing curved edges that absolutely do NOT mar your wire/metal.
I love this hammer! It's steady, sturdy and exactly what I needed. Hammer away!!!
Amazing hammer at an amazing price! I could not be happier.
Great hammer, comfortable to use, adds different kinds of texture when you take the time to experament with all it's different uses.
Great price couldn't love it more.
Love this hammer. Great for flattening a blank with out marking it and does a great job texturizing too!
I wish I could give this hammer a 100 star rating. It is so affordable and does the job perfectly! I love using it to texture my pieces. You can use the flat end, or the ball peen end. I personally love the flat end to texture.
love this chasing hammer. this chasing hammer very sturdy, great price.
i like that head of hammer is domed much better than other ones i seen.
i use mine to flatten out wire for earrings. and texturing pieces.
Finally a proper chasing hammer!It finishes the ends of my copper beautifully. It's a little light for my taste on texturing when I use the ball-peen end, but otherwise a great product.
This is a great improvement from the old chasing hammer that I had. The only thing is getting used to hammering with it as it is a little more domed than my other one was. After practicing I love the way my wire looks especially after texturing.
Great decision to purchase this hammer; so much better than the one I had.
I love being able to texture the edges of a stamping blank with this. It gives it a nice finished all around look. Also can help if a stamp gets closer to the edge of the blank than I like, this helps to reshape that area too.
