The traditional hammer, unchanged for centuries, now appears to be going the way of the dodo.

Why use Titanium for a hammer? Because traditional steel ones send 10-times more shock up your arm with every strike.

For durability, the face of the hammer is still steel & magnetic for easier nail starts.
