The history of the hammer dates back to ancient times. The Romans, who invented the forged iron nail, used the claw hammer as a dual-purpose tool for pulling and pounding nails. A simple tool by design, a hammer consists of two basic components: the handle and the head.
The quality of the material used for these components, and the proper head-to-handle weight distribution, make the difference between a quality striking tool and one that can pose a user safety risk.
