You can’t swing a hammer to save your life — is a bigger head going to help? Stanley claims the larger sweet spot on their new hammer will reduce the number of misses and deliver more power to the blows that do hit the nail on the head.
Stanley makes the forged steel head of this 16oz claw hammer 70% larger (than other Stanley 16 oz. claw hammers?) and they temper the rim to reduce chipping and spalling. They give the handle a graphite core to reduce weight and a ribbed and flared grip to prevent the hammer from flying out of your hand.
Stanley currently only sells this hammer at participating “Preview Dealer” stores. For now you’ll pay $17 at the Do it Best website with free to-store shipping — if you can find a store nearby that’s participating.
