Intended purpose

A metal, usually stainless steel, surgical instrument comprising a handle, shaft and head. The handle is

designed to fit into the palm of the hand and is usually round. This handle tapers distally into a shaft which

terminates in a head. Hammer heads are usually cylindrical in shape although variations exist. Some

hammer heads are fitted on one or both ends with a material, rubber or plastic, to absorb the shock of

impact. Such instruments are often referred to as a mallet. Hammers are used in various surgical

procedures to impart a force on an appliance.
