Introducing the Original Tungsten Carbide Niroc Knockometer - a masterfully crafted tool designed for precision work. Weighing in at approximately 160 grams (5.6 oz), this hammer was originally created for blade straightening, but it has found its place in the hearts of panel beaters, tool makers, leather workers, saw doctors, and tool repairers alike. Whether you're fixing blades or working on delicate projects, this hammer is your trusted companion.
Handmade with meticulous care, the Niroc Knockometer features a brass head machined from solid brass bar. Brass is chosen for its higher density compared to steel, ensuring the carbide insert is securely bedded and reducing the risk of chipping or fracturing. The tungsten carbide inserts are expertly silver brazed in place with 45% silver brazing alloy, guaranteeing their permanent retention.
The integral hourglass-tapered eye design not only enhances the hammer's aesthetics but also ensures a rock-solid fit with the handle. Whether we fit the handle or you do it yourself, this hammer is built to stay securely assembled.
Why choose a Tungsten Carbide Faced Hammer? The carbide ball peen on this hammer is perfect for straightening blades, while the brass flat face provides a softer deadblow surface, ideal for delicate tasks like straightening San Mai blades or fitting guards and fittings. The brass face won't mark steel, making it an excellent choice for various applications. Keep in mind that the brass face may show wear over time and can be dressed as needed.
The spotted gum handle, sourced from Australia, adds both character and functionality to this tool. Each handle is carefully selected, and while they may not always be perfectly symmetrical due to the manufacturing process, they provide an excellent grip and a unique feel for the hammer's orientation. The handles come in various shades, ranging from light tan to dark red.
With the Niroc Knockometer, you're investing in a tool that's not only a work of craftsmanship but also a versatile companion for a wide range of tasks. Crafted with dedication and attention to detail, this hammer will serve you well for years to come.
