Ball Pein Hammers

A ball pein hammer has two heads, one flat and the other rounded. The rounded head (known as the pein) is useful for shaping metal objects by striking them repeatedly. Ball pein hammers are ideal for tasks that involve driving chisels or heavy nails and setting rivets.

  • Available in 16 oz and 32 oz head weight
  • The heavy steel head is less likely to chip
  • Handles are usually made of wood

Blacksmith Hammers

Blacksmith hammers are specialized hammers used to flatten and shape steel during the process of forging metal. They are made up of a durable steel head with two sides, a pein and a square or round face.

  • Range from 2 to 4 lbs
  • Not meant to drive punches or chisels
  • Handles are made of fiberglass or wood

Brick Hammers

Also called a masonry or stonemason’s hammer, a brick hammer is used to chip off edges of stone or cut brick or concrete without having to use a chisel. One end looks like a traditional hammer with a flat face, while the other end is a long chisel-shaped blade. 

  • Available in head weights from 15 oz to 24 oz
  • Versatile and durable
  • Handles are made out of steel

Claw Hammers

Used primarily in carpentry, a claw hammer is ideal for driving nails into and pulling them out of wood. The head is made of forged steel that curves and splits at the other end to make it easier to get extra leverage.

  • Available in 16 oz, 18 oz and 20 oz head weights
  • The most commonly used type of hammer
  • Handles are made out of fiberglass or steel

  • Available in 2lbs and 3lbs
  • Often used for demo work
  • Usually made out of fiberglass
