FORGED STEEL HEAD The reinforced forged steel SledgeHammer head is an alloy of carbon and iron that is compressed under extreme pressure to make a very hard and strong substance - hardened and tempered for durability. The bonus of forged steel is that the metal becomes stronger than equivalent types that are cast or machined.
HARDWOOD HICKORY HANDLE Harder woods are more resistant to dents and dings than softer woods. This is the main reason why fine furniture, cabinets, and premium trim work are usually made of hardwood. Hardwood simply stands up better to everyday use and abuse.
HANDLE DESIGN The hardwood hickory handle is designed with an oval shape so it can harnesses the downward force of a swing. Its swinging action is however comparable to the swinging action made while using an axe and is not like a hammerfts action.
HEAVY DUTY USE This is a tool that is not meant for light duty tasks. In fact, its big size and design make it perfect to use for those tasks that require extra force and effort than that produced by a standard hammer. While you do need to have some strength to use a sledge hammer with full force, itfts mainly the long swinging range and heavy head that increases the resulting force and impact. Sledge Hammers are perfect to use for demolition work.
