Hammers

Aside from hammering down nails, a hammer can also come in handy if you need to deform or split some object or material. This simple hand tool usually consists of a haft (handle) and a hammer head.

Basic hammer types

  • Claw hammer - the head has a V-shaped fork used to pull out nails or in construction work, e.g. tearing out old floorboards and wooden elements.
  • Locksmith hammer - a basic, universal hammer, widely used for various types of work. A must-have for any household and workshop, preferably in two weights: 500 g and 1000 g.
  • Sledgehammer - the size of its head allows a sledgehammer to apply more force than other hammers, so it is used for works where you need heavy blows, such as when working with a steel chisel.

Key parameters when choosing a hammer

Weight

  • Less than 500 g - hammering down nails, putting together store-bought furniture.
  • Over 500 g - demolition work, work with a chisel.

Haft material

  • Wooden haft - usually the cheapest, but may splinter or break under force.
  • Fiberglass or steel haft - virtually indestructible, often attached to the hammer head directly.

Look for hammers with an anti-vibe rubber grip if you work with a hammer often. The anti-vibe grip absorbs shocks, sparing your hands.
