Cutting dovetails by hand involves a lot of personal choices – from the saw to the chisel to even which part of the joint you cut first. So it was with great trepidation that I tried the Tite-Hammer from Glen-Drake Toolworks.

However, after a couple sets of dovetails, I was sold. The Tite-Hammer offers a level of control and sensitivity that traditional wooden mallets don’t give me. The small size of the hammer allows you to wrap your index finger over the head of the tool with the handle nestled in your palm.
