We now stock Stiletto Titanium hammers and flat bars. These new hammers are in a class by themselves, with features like improved balance, better face hardness and durability, stronger head-to-handle connection, more accurate nail pulling performance, and of course our signature magnetic nail slot. These lighter tools have the power to drive framing nails with the ease of a heavier steel framing hammers, with better control and accuracy.
Titanium hammer heads, at nearly half the weight of steel, have ten times less recoil shock than steel, significantly reducing the risk of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and other stress related injuries. With a common steel hammers, up to 30% of the kinetic energy created by the user's swing can be lost to recoil vibration, which can be transferred down the handle to the users arm. This energy that is normally lost to recoil with Steel is more efficiently transferred to the nail using a Titanium hammer.
Stiletto Titanium hammers can actually help alleviate repetitive motion injuries, and reduce muscle and joint soreness at the end of a workday, making these powerful yet lightweight tools well worth the price.
