For over ninety years, Estwing has taken pride in designing and manufacturing the finest American made hand tools. Their hammers and axes are forged in one piece of solid American steel to last a lifetime.
Many of their tools are offered with genuine leather grips. Laminated leather washers are pressed on and riveted, providing a comfortable leather grip that wears beautifully. Estwing’s nylon-vinyl grip, with its patented Shock Reduction feature, is permanently molded and bonded to the handle shank. This exclusive grip reduces the vibration transfer from the hammer blow to the user by as much as 70%.
