Picard Planishing Hammer

Precisely ground and hardened, hand-forged, steel head with highly polished tips mounted on a hickory handle to provide the right weight and balance. Made in Germany.

  • Round Faces
  • Flat Face 25mm diameter
  • Round Domed Face 27mm diameter
  • Weight 170g

Review

The hammer feels a little bit heavier than the quoted weight so I just balanced the head on the scales and it read 200g (~7oz). Some of this extra weight is down to the handle. I laid the head on the scales and then supported the handle roughly where you would hold it.


Price: approx 28

Conclusion

Definitely not the cheapest of hammers, but the head is finished to a mirror finish, the handle is exquisite and the balance overall is superb.
