Germany Medical Mead Mallet is crafted for multi-purpose use in surgical procedures that require driving a chisel or gouge deeper into bone such as when bone splitting is required. Uniquely this mallet features an eight ounce head as well as fiber caps on either end. The caps help protect the mallet head from damage due to striking other metal surfaces. This mallet can be used in more general maneuvers that require a quick force to drive something into place. Replacement fiber caps are also available.
