Hammer, Hatchet or Tire Thumper!


NOTICE:  Backordered Items

Over the past year we have seen incredible growth and want to thank all of our customers for their support.  That kind of growth doesn't come without some serious challenges though.  We've grown over 600% in the last year and our unprecedented January & February sales have put a serious dent in our inventory.  Some of our products are now backordered and will remain that way for a few months.  We anticipate having our inventory issues resolved in May.  For the time being, any products that we don't currently have available will be marked as such on our website.  Please know that we will be shipping in the order received once we have the items in stock, but likely won't be able to provide an exact shipping date until the order is ready to be sent.

We are taking this time to expand and prepare for sustaining our growth.  Recently we moved into a new 18,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility.  Over the coming months we will be focused on training new employees, scrutinizing our processes, and preparing our growing team to meet the demand for our American made tools and accessories.

Thank you to everyone that has made this success possible.  You've created many new jobs for American workers, not just for us but our American suppliers as well.  Thank you very much for your patience over the next few months as we ramp up our facilities to continue to provide Hardcore's American made products around the globe.

the hammer difference


  • HARDCORE Hammers recessed milled traction surface grips only the nail.

  • HARDCORE Hammers smooth outer rim protects the traction surface from striking anything but the nail, improving resistance to wear. The smooth outer rim also protects fingers and thumbs from injury from the waffle.

  • HARDCORE Hammers leave NO waffle print.

  • HARDCORE Hammers compares to NO other hammer.

  • HARDCORE Hammers offer a striking surface unparalleled by any other framing hammer available.

  • HARDCORE Hammers traction surface wears longer than any conventional milled face.

  • HARDCORE Hammers provides all the advantages of both smooth face and milled face hammers.

  • HARDCORE Hammers outlast all others.
