The Original Hardcore Hammer Model 2.0

• 21oz. investment cast 4140 American steel head
• 18 inch Grade A American Hickory Handle
• Patented waffled insert

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!

Blunt Force Smooth Face Hammer.

• 21oz. investment cast 4140 American steel head
• 18 inch Grade A American Hickory Handle
• Smooth hammer face - finish style

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.

We then beefed up the 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. We truly hope you will enjoy these new improvements and and feel free to reach out to us directly with any questions or comments.


OK: before you ask, we already did: “Why, if the original Hardcore Hammer is a milled face AND a smooth face hammer in one, would we make a smooth face hammer?” Well, because there are different hammers for different pounding needs. While we feel that the original Hardcore Hammer is the best framing hammer ever made, we know that lots of guys out there swing hammers as a daily part of their job, yet almost never need them for driving nails. They need a great hammer for everything ELSE they need to pound. They just need some BLUNT FORCE. THAT’S why we made a smooth hammer: because “POUND IT” can mean more than just driving nails.
