Traditional Japanese Hammer | Daruma Gennou - 375 & 450g

Traditional Japanese Hammer | Daruma Gennou

Large Round Face Hammer in 375 or 450g

 

Japanese hammers (or Genno / Gennou) are an extremely well balanced tool made with a unique steel that helps to absorb some of the impact of a hammer strike. They are made to be used with Japanese chisels (Nomi) and Japanese woodworking planes (Kanna), along with performing precision hammering tasks like driving small nails in tight or awkward locations. As is the case with most traditional Japanese hammers, one side of the face is flat with the opposing side a slight convex to help perform different tasks more accurately.

 

This particular hammer, the Daruma, possesses a larger face than the other variants of gennou we stock, making it easier to strike a chisel or nail. They are not as good for performing accurate nail strikes in tight locations, for this we recommend a square or octagonal shaped hammer, as the flat edge makes it easier to strike a nail dead flat and/or perpendicular to an opposing surface. The Daruma is great for general chiseling work and setting up / tuning Japanese planes.
