Small hammer : WWII artifact


Recommended Posts

You'll notice the one side is the number 22 not SS as in the hitler regime and ,as Bigundoctor said, the swastica like design is many thousands of yeasr old. I too suspect just an unfortunate coincidence.Yuck.. Log brand-lots of them around. Hit the end of the log with it on the end the scaler is going to see...

I'd go with the last two posts as well. They're saying that it predates WWII to a time when the swastika was simply a clever graphic. The other end certainly looks like a '22' to me as well, not the two lightning bolts to form 'SS'.

Besides, what would the SS need with a log marking hammer?

The symbol that is now considered to be a swatstica was used for good luck prior to Hitler.
Triump made a trap with it on the pan.
