These ergonomically designed hammers are designed to fit in your hand correctly aligned, so that you hold and use them with ease. Tremendous thought and care has gone into every facet of the hammers' design. The hammers have some of advantages of a brass mallet - the metal head that gives precise control and a concentrated mass for a shorter, less fatiguing stroke - but have the leverage and lighter head of a regular hammer. The heads are rotated 30 degrees to encourage use with a relaxed wrist.

The hammers' handles, made of California tanoak, are asymmetrically shaped to provide a controlled grip and are mounted to heads at their center of gravity to produce a balanced feel. All in all, the Glen-Drake hammer is an exceptionally responsive tool. And we think that in addition to being a great hammer for chisels, they are wonderfully suited for carving tools, since a responsive hammer is such a valuable tool.

Four sizes of the hammer are available, for both right and left handed people. The 2 middle sizes are probably the most useful, but a lot depends on the kind of work you do. Overall handle length is listed above. Made in USA.
