Each Carvers Mallet is a unique handmade creation made from locally sourced seasoned hardwood. The representations you see on the website are typical offerings, not the specific item you will receive. We are unable to offer options such as size or color. They are all 8-10″ in length. Color is determined by the type of wood and that changes seasonally. Imperfections such as small cracks or channels left by borers are to be expected and lend character to these mallets.
