"I never realized it until I held the old girl that the
handle was the answer to the riddle of the "Perfect
Mallet" not the head!
The head was only the
"Business End" and not the interface to the hand!
Yes, its weight and balance do have something to do with
the overall feel of the tool but it is the handle that
is the true secret to the sublime communication that one
has between tool and wood. Alas! To work!".
