These are my latest hammers being auctioned at ebay.http://tinyurl.com/lqavkl9 The reserve is low and the buy it now is 34 dollars with shipping of 2.50 any where in the lower 48.
They are made with poplar for the shafts and an exotic hardwood for the handles and striking surface. Thin veneers of cherry wood is placed in the handles to add to the attractiveness. They are 9 grams a piece and 8.5 inches in length. The center point for balance is about one inch from the end of the handle, so they are handle balanced vs head balanced. They are beautiful to behold and comfortable to play. The leather is notched into the wood so there's no chance of catching the leather on the strings.

Check them out on Youtube here:

Thanks so much!

You make nice looking hammers! It is hard to tell just from a picture if a set of hammers will work for you.

It would be helpful to provide some measurements, such as the total length of the hammer.
Also, the distance from the middle of the handle(gripping point) to the middle of the hammer head (striking point).

Some players like shorter hammers that pivot on the thumb and forefinger, with the weight more toward the handle end.
Some prefer longer hammers with the weight more toward the hammer head.

Where is the center of gravity on your hammers?

Thanks :)

thanks for the tips and kind comments. I just completed a set of hammers out of Paduak and ebony. They are balanced more towards the handles and I have included the specific measurements in this e bay listing. http://www.ebay.com/itm/111412541400?ss ... 1555.l2649
Thanks so much for the advice.

Here they are on youtTube
