Yarn

You won’t find any of the yarns we use in your local haberdashery because they are specialist yarns custom made for us. We only use 100% synthetic, and for very good reason. Natural fibres break up, filaments split, and can quickly begin to fray, however, our yarn stands the test of time. Many of the very first mallets we made are still in use and as good as the day they were made.

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 average 4 inches per day, it is also one of the fastest thriving plants in the world. Our rattan is supplied from trusted farmers and selected for its strength and straightness.

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

Mallet heads

The heads of our mallets are threaded in order to add a mechanical bond between head and handle. This extra step strengthens the bond and significantly reduces the risk of a mallet head flying off! To date, this has never happened! 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 incredible bonding strength. To this day we’ve not had a single pair returned to us because of a head becoming loose.
