Why Use Malleable Iron Hammers? Safety! 

Malleable Iron Hammers are:

Made with sturdy hickory or fiberglass handles 

Malleable Iron Hammers are heat annealed at 1600 degrees for 2 days. This softens the iron. Malleable Iron Hammers don't chip, break or split, they simply "mushroom" so you won't mar what you strike. This iron is different from ductile or grey iron.

Use Malleable Iron in place of steel, brass, copper or lead hammers. Malleable Iron will last longer than other metals and it won't mar like steel.

The Hammer Source makes 5 sizes of Malleable Iron Hammers - 1,2,3,4 and 5 lb. Each size is made with tough Nupla fiberglass handles that are epoxied to the head. Most fiberglass handles have a notched rubber non-slip grip. The handle will not separate if broken. 

The Hammer Source uses solid hickory wood handles on 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 lb. hammers for lighter duty jobs. The hickory handles are steel wedged at the top of the handle to hold the heads on tight.
