Chasing hammer features a smooth, slightly convex face for use with chasing punches and for flattening as well as a ball pein side for riveting and texturing. Because it's only slightly rounded, the large face has a wider striking area with smooth edges so it won't mar your work. Chasing Hammers have a large face for flattening and a ball-peen side for riveting and metal design, which creates the hammered look. Wedge mounted on a wooden handle. Very slightly domed head. I LOVE this hammer! Sold by the hammer.
