Dec. 13 is the last day place an order in our store and be reasonably assured that it will arrive before Christmas. We have almost everything in stock except for card scrapers. That is a Christmas Miracle after the last 20 months of uncertainty and shortages.
Now some unfortunate news: The price of steel has gone up twice since we introduced the Crucible Lump Hammers. And we are to the point where we either have to lower the quality (nope), discontinue the product (nope) or raise the price.
The price will increase on Jan. 1, 2022. I’m not sure how much it will go up because we are waiting on a quote for our custom-turned and drawknifed handles.
We don’t like to raise prices, but we also like staying in business. If you want to buy them at the current price, you have until Jan. 1.

That’s where they get’cha, with custom-turned and drawknifed handles.
Are you looking to start making Crucible drawknives?
The prices on custom-turned and unicorned handles is going through the roof.
That’s because when you mount the unicorn on the lathe, disastrous things can happen. (Unfortunately, the safest way to turn the horn is when it’s still mounted to the animal.)
I don’t see any in the photos, but are there any makers marks or logo imprints on the hammer?
Yup. Our logo is engraved on the underside of the head
Sorry, I laughed out loud at that . . .
Hi Chris, I love the mallets, problem is we cannot buy them here in the UK, I tried the other week to buy some products from the site only to notice you do not ship to the UK, never mind, maybe it will change soon.
Keep up the great news, writings, woodwork etc.
Classic Hand Tools in the UK carries them:
