ABC’s 1 lb Brass Hammer is designed for ultimate safety and durability. Brass doesn’t spark on impact, making this hammer safe for use in potentially explosive situations such as the oil or gas industries.
Unlike typical steel hammers, ABC’s 1 lb brass hammer yields on contact to prevent damaging metalwork. This makes it ideal for gunsmithing and automotive use. Brass won’t mar or shatter untempered steel, and is corrosion-resistant with no need for special storage. Despite its 1 lb weight, it requires less force to produce an impact than an ordinary hammer. Barrel-shaped hammerhead provides balance as well as even blow distribution.
The hammerhead is permanently secured to the handle using ABC’s unique wedge design. Use of brass wedges eliminates sparking found in typical hammers that use steel wedges. Handles are comfortably tapered, with a textured non-slip grip for improved safety. Made of grade-A Tennessee hickory with a urethane coating for UV protection.
