Japanese Mallet - in Holm Oak

I really like the hammered finish on Japanese Hammers.
So I thought why not do a woodworkers version?
Leave all the chisel and plane marks on it?
Make it fast, leave it off the tool.

The head is the off cut - for the string on the pole lathe.
I showed this being turned in green Holm Oak
on a previous post...

Drilled at an angle, off centre, to bring the weight into the blow.
Feels nice - time to finish and stamp it now.
