TOM'S INDESTRUCTIBLE WOODEN MALLET MADE FROM AN OLD AZOBE RAILWAY SLEEPER
06 August 2021
I love the idea of a virtually unbreakable mallet. It sounds like something that a superhero would use in a Marvel comic. Thor and his everlasting hammer! It certainly reflects the nature of Azobe timber, (also known as Ekki, Ironwood & Bongossi) that is said to be the hardest industrially used wood in the world. Railway sleepers used from this tropical hardwood tend to last for decades without any treatment, and even when they have outlasted their railway life, they have wonderful other usages, ranging from landscaping to furniture, and magical bullet proof mallets!
