A ball pein hammer is typically used for riveting work and shaping metal surfaces and tools. Like a standard hammer, ball pein hammers usually have wooden or fiberglass handles, sometimes with a rubber grip for extra control and comfort. One head of the hammer is flat and circular, while the other is rounded. The biggest difference between most ball pein hammers is the weight, with lighter weights working best for smaller items or more delicate jobs. Shorter handles are better for working in tight spaces, but longer handles offer more power. The longevity of ball pein hammers will vary based on the frequency of use and the coating of the handle.
