|The "fluffy" outer surface of the hammer is visible
in most of the image above. Top right corner is space, i.e. above the fluffiest
part of the hammer surface. Toward the bottom of the image the main, denser
part of the hammer felt body begins. The other images below show higher
magnification of the denser part at various depths below the strikepoint.
