Amit Har-Lev is unable to produce hammers anymore. These are now a collectible tool. We hope to find a new source for our hammers soon.
The Pieh Tool Ergonomic Hammer is designed to move metal fast. Its compact head allows the hammer to be worked at extreme angles. These hammers are well balanced.
Each handle is ground and fit from straight grain aged hickory. The hammer handle is glued using a modern Polyurethane adhesive. This has the advantage of being able to flex during humidity and temperature changes which should give you many years of trouble free performance without the head loosening. You should always take the time to fit the handle to your hand.
Like all hand forged items each is unique and the overall weight and shape will vary slightly.
*Tip: If you should break a handle simply heat the hammer at the cheeks slowly and carefully and the old handle can be removed.
Made in Israel by Amit Har-lev. Handled in the USA.
Exclusive to the Pieh Legacy Collection
We use 1045 steel in our hammers, Rockwell 50-55 hardness.
Because these hammers are hand forged, their head weights will vary. For instance a 2 lb hammer may actaully weigh 4-6 oz less.
