Yarn

 We use custom made, 100% synthetic yarn, and for very good reason. Natural fibres break, filaments split and can quickly begin to fray; our yarn stands the test of time. Many of the  first mallets we manufactured are still in use today.

Handles

Rattan is the generic name of approximately 600 species of climbing plants existing in only a few parts of the world, mostly South East Asia. Growing at an incredible speed of approximately 4 inches per day, it is one of the fastest thriving plants in the world. Our rattan is supplied from trusted farmers, selected for its strength and straightness.

Our birch and maple handles are sourced exclusively from North America, they are strong, straight and smooth!

Mallet heads

We thread our mallet heads in order to add a mechanical bond between head and handle. This extra step strengthens the bond significantly reducing the risk of a mallet head flying off! Precision manufactured with cutting edge injection moulding machines, our mallet cores are perfectly balanced and perfectly round.

Bonding

Our pursuit to find the right glue took over two years. Bonding cores to handles is of paramount importance and something we take very seriously. We use aerospace technology glue with outstanding strength. To this day we’ve not had a single pair returned because of a head becoming loose.
