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.
Head is 19 oz.

Why do we say "One Hammer to Rule Them All"? Because there is no other hammer like it. This is the original Hardcore Hammer with a recessed milled insert. The insert is forged from some of the toughest steel on the planet. And because it is recessed, the milled traction surface is protected from striking anything but the nail by the smooth outer rim, virtually eliminating the need for two hammers, because it combines a finish and a framing hammer all in one. No need for extra tools to change out the striking face from waffled to smooth, no spare parts to lose or pay extra for! This is the only hammer in the world that can switch from framing to finish work just by swinging it! No hammer compares, and Hardcore Hammers are proudly built in the USA with quality that will outlast any other hammer head out there.
