Item NA5 - Serving Mallet.  Extra Nice “hammer” Form

This dark and nicely fashioned serving mallet is in the “hammer” form to allow it to be turned over a line or rigging piece to enwrap it (serve) with a ‘whip” binding or protective chaffing gear made of tarred marline.  This small example is grooved on top of its head to wrap the serving around a piece of cordage about only ½diameter.  Its head is 4” long, with a diameter is 1 ¼” and the handle is 4 ¼ long.  The wood is a dark tropical hardwood—probably a species of ebony-containing just a single streak of sapwood.  It is an elegant sailor’s tool.  Fine
