Our Blackened Original Hardcore Hammer 2.0 head is even tougher with FNC! The FNC (Ferritic Nitrocarburizing) process uses heat, nitrogen and carbon to toughen up the surface of our 4140 steel, improving its durability, appearance and corrosion resistance. This head is available on your choice of Grade A American hickory handle options.

We have undergone a major redesign and retooling of our Original Hardcore Hammer! As you can see, we’ve made a few improvements to the original design, with the intent of making this hammer even more versatile and user friendly than before. We’ve lengthened and widened the claw to allow a greater variety of nails to fit (both smaller trim nails and larger), we’ve repositioned the magnet placement to allow better grip of nails for one handed nail starting, as well as to allow the bottom magnet to accept duplex nails used in concrete form work. Also, we improved the draft on the inside of the hammer eye for a better handle/head connection to reduce the possibility of the head loosening. We then beefed up the size of the head by 2 oz, to make the new version 21oz instead of 19oz, for greater striking force while maintaining excellent balance and feel during use. Lastly, we changed the depth of the waffle face on the Original 2.0 to allow for greater nail gripping while striking, and cast the hardened insert in place in the face of the hammer to ensure the disc will never separate from the rest of the hammer! We truly hope you will enjoy these new improvements and and feel free to reach out to us directly with any questions or comments.
