3 faced hammer


Recommended Posts

Yeah, I thought the handles were a bit sharp, and the taper towards the end would make it more likely to slip. The tool did intrigue me, maybe not as a hammer though. The weight on either side would make it want to roll to one side or the other with each hit, especially if the faces aren't the same weight. Now as a top set with a mild steel button in between the faces to hit might work. I'm thinking eye punches... Socket, ball and pupil on one tool.

Tin knocker's hammers. The handles should be roughly triangular with each "pointed" side towards a face. It makes them index in the hand naturally and seeing as you don't strike with much force, more a wrist flick movement, they don't turn once you get the hang of it. 

They're not a common type but there are a few around.
