These hammers have the strength of steel but with a titanium feel. The engineers at Estwing have made a hammer that is light in weight and can drive a nail as easily as a much heavier hammer. It is all in the design: a solid one piece forging for maximum strength and a large striking face. Moulding the nylon shock resistant handle directly onto the shaft gives a permanent non-slip grip. The head also has a built-in nail starter magnet and an extra nail-pulling notch on the side.
