Traditional Japanese Hammer | Daruma Gennou - 375 & 450g

This particular Japanese hammer, the Daruma, has a larger face than other variants of gennou we stock, making it easier to strike a chisel or nail. They are not as good for tight location nailing, for this we recommend a square or octagonal shaped hammer, the flat edge makes it easier to strike a nail dead flat perpendicular to an opposing surface. The Daruma is great for general chiseling work and tuning kanna (Japanese planes).

    Japanese Woodworking Tools | Gennou (Hammers)

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