Tools : Brick Chisel and Mason Hammer

In a previous post I explained how you can make your own tesserae cutting stands out of standard inexpensive mason tools. 

The traditional Hardie and Martelina have been used for over 2000 years, and they are perfect for the work. 

However, they are expensive, and a Brick Chisel  and Mason Hammer can be substituted for them...

Brick Chisel retails under $10.00
Mason Hammer - retails around $20.00

These tools are available at most DIY stores such as Lowes or Home depot - and they are probably even cheaper at your local flea market...


  1. I just purchased the Mason Hammer. So reasonable at DIY store! Now to find a support for the Chisel...

  2. These are really helpful tools for stone mason work. Thanks for sharing it and keep such useful tools with us.
