They say when all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. When all you have is a $250 hammer, does everything look like a gold-plated nail? Seriously, folks, you don’t have to look far to find some seriously spendy hammers out there. The Stilleto TiBones pictured above run a whopping $200+. Hell, just scoring the replaceable face for one’ll set you back a Hamilton (or two).
Estwing offers a number of $100+ models, too, though some check in under $30. Even that’s a pretty big swing from the $15 store-brand special.
So what will you spend on a hammer? $20? $50? $100? More? And why? What do you look for in a hammer, and why is it worth your hard-earned cash?
