Hardcore Hammers began in 2010 with two brothers, nearly three decades of combined carpentry and framing experience, and their mission to create the highest quality, innovative tools made in America.  With the invention of the Original Hardcore Hammer, a longer lasting hammer that combined the function of framing and finishing hammers, the journey began. 


We've grown exponentially year after year, expanding our line of striking tools into several new hatchet and axe designs and adding high quality accessories while maintaining our principles of providing premium American made products.  In 2020, we moved into our new 18,000 sq. ft. facility in Hillsboro, Illinois to better facilitate the demand and continued growth. We take great pride in being an American manufacturer and sourcing the best American made materials from other American businesses while providing employment and growth to the American labor force.
