I am offering for sale this great Antique c. 1880's-1900 Shipwrights/Shipbuilders "CALKING HAMMER" that's in SUPERB used Condition with the Patina just right on this one! I purchased this from the grandson of a shipbuilder. He said he used to go with his grandfather to watch him use his tools of trade. The man I purchase this from was in his 70's.....he was holding on to his grandfather's tools all these years, but just now decided to let them go....what a great find!!! The mallet is split to the handle so it will not ring! The Wooden Handle has Great Patina and is in Original Condition! Comes with All four Metal Rings, you can see the OLD Leather/Cloth Someone used for a spacer probably over a Hundred Years ago! That Handle measures 13" with the Calking Head being 9" long. All and all, a PERFECT Piece of Maritime History that will Certainly add to ones collection, it's a KEEPER for SURE! Please just take a look at all the photo's to get a better description of what you may be receiving! I do ship worldwide! Thanks for looking... and please email with any questions.
