About a year ago, a rather interesting title changed hands: the bragging rights for world’s largest hammer may have gone down under, thanks to Kevin Plant and his 600-lb. custom built rig.

Australian steals title for “World’s Biggest Hammer” from the US!
Kevin Plant, Founder and Manager of Trade-A-Trade.com can now lay claim to the world’s largest hammer, and it is floating in the Pine River in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia from 4-12 February 2011. The hammer is 10 metres/33 feet long, the biggest in the world.

Of course it’s not the largest “functional” hammer, as smacking a fastener built to the same scale would likely split the strike face in two. However, it does come with a cool floating case, which is not something you’re going to find with any other hammer.

    So this is really the world’s biggest prop hammer.

    Nice looking, though.

    Now, to build the world’s largest nail…

    at 0:50 it says built by one man
    at 1:23 he says took us five days to make it
    So is it made by one man and/or does one refer to himself as us in the outback
