I have combined 4 tools here at a kit price to save you money.
Included in the kit are.
2x2 steel hammering block
2x2x2 Wooden Dapping block with punches
4 oz. Ball peen hammer
9 inch Plastic shaping Mallet
Below are the descriptions for use on each item.

Ball peen hammer:
The is an excellent weight hammer for all round metal working
This hammer is the perfect weight for forging silver and copper wire. It works best with a steel block either 2 x 2 or 4 x 4 or even a horn anvil.

Hammering sterling wire hardens it so it will hold it's shape nicely.It flattens wire to give it a more interesting look. You can use the edge for the flat side to make texturing marks. You can use the ball side to also make texture marks. I use the heck out of my ball peen hammer. I'll bet you will to.

Steel block:
This Block is a great place to do silver stamping texturing and forging or flattening. It is smooth and ready for action. If the surface is too smooth and your stamping slips, try tacky finger for page turning or what bank tellers use. It can help keep your silver in place while stamping. If your block is bouncing fold some news paper into a 1/4 or 1/8 for underneath.
Size 2” x 2” x ¾”
Working great with design and letter stamps

PLastic Mallet:
This mallet is for shaping or hardening the silver or copper with out marring it. I most frequently use it when I’m stamping to reflatten the item I was stamping on. The process of stamping causes the metal to get a little distorted and start to curve. Once this starts to happen it gets difficult to continue stamping so I flip over the item and tap flat again, design down on the steel block with the plastic mallet. You can then continue to texture or stamp. I also use it with the wooden dapping block to curve the silver. You can also use it to harden silver wire with out changing its shape. It is a multi use tool.
9 inchs long and the head is 1 1/4 x 3 inchs

Wood Dapping block:
Start at the shallowest depression first and gently tap the silver element into the depression. Creates a nice cupping effect. I use a hi impact plastic mallet for hitting the dappers. A metal hammer will eventually wreck your wooden dappers.
