When to Use a Knockdown Hammer vs a Blending Hammer?

Blending hammers are best used for larger, softer high spots. Knockdowns are generally smaller tips best suited for sharper damage. Metals that harder (e.g. steel) and sharp high spots are most often repaired with a small, sharp knockdown. For high spots requiring a much stronger strike, we recommend using knockdown tips specially designed to prevent breaking or marring of the paint.
