Hammers are basic tools in many trades. The usual features are a head (most often made of steel) and a handle (also called a helve or haft). Although most hammers are hand tools, powered versions exist; they are known as powered hammers. Types of power hammer include steam hammers and trip hammers, often for heavier uses, such as forging.

Kincrome hammers are economical & great value. Forged from high carbon steel the precision ground head has chamfered edges and is anchored, like other hammers in the Kincrome range, to American straight grained hickory handle.
