Design Stamps are a bit tricky. I highly recommend you practice on some cheap metal before diving into your Sterling Silver or Gold Filled. Click here to purchase a piece of copper sheet for practicing.
For best results with Design Stamps, make sure there is NO padding under your Bench Block, make sure you are working on a stable table, and use a hammer which weighs at least 16 ounces. We recommed a Brass Head Mallet. Feel free to hit the stamp more than once, but hold the stamp steady, making sure you don't shift at all between hits. The more confident you are with the hammer and the strength behind it, the better your impression will be.

Took some getting use to at first but now I really like it.
I like the design but it's too slippery in my hand and jumps around a lot. I've ruined several blanks.
Like the design, but I would prefer a shorter shank and a squarer one.
Like others said it would be nice with a square shank. The round ones are a little harder to hang on to. Cute design.
I like this stamp. I tried it on pewter and copper and good impressions
I definitely like the design.
As other comments pointed out, I agree it takes a few tries to get used to hold the thin stamp; having said that, it work well.
