Hammers & Mallets

All hammers and mallets have specific tasks they achieve, for instance bricklayers need a scutch hammer for instance, ground workers will need a pavers rubber mallet or demolition workers may need a sledgehammer, and every home should have a general purpose claw hammer. Correct head-to-handle weight ratio is key, as a good balance delivers a blow that seems to swing itself, perfect for lots of hammer and nail work.

Choosing the correct grip on a mallet or hammer is a personal choice, so choosing one that’s comfortable is a good place to start. Comfort is one thing another is the material it’s made from. For instance all our wood handle hammers are made from hickory or ash. Hickory and ash are used for their strength, and ability to withstand shocks without splitting or cracking. But its horses for courses as fiberglass handles are more durable than wood. For instance, they won’t crack, shrink or get loose, even when left out in the weather. This makes them great tools for tossing in the back of a flat back van and forgetting about. Fibreglass and tubular steel shafts are also fitted with soft grips handles for added user comfort. This said; fibreglass and tubular steel handles cannot be adapted like a wood handle can.

As the old adage goes, the most expensive hammer you can buy is the cheap hammer, which can become a dangerous liability in its short lifespan.
