The proper driving tool for bevel edge chisels is a wooden mallet which is only used on those chisels that have a metal ring at the end of their handle (or a metal rod going all the way through). Handles without that reinforcement will not withstand hammering without damage! Drive these by hand or using a light piece of scrap wood and they should be fine.
