Leather Wroking Ball Peen Hammer

Leather working ball peen hammers are used mostly for smoothing out or pounding out seams on rawhide. The head is composed of a ball-shaped, rounded end, and a flat, hammering end. The roundness of the ball helps it provide surface pressure to areas and in ways not always possible with the more standard flat end (although it has that too if needed). It can be handy to have if one does a lot of saddle work or sewing of thicker leathers.
