Claw-in-Hammer

A claw hammer is a widely used tool in many places but sometimes it gives a dangerous impression to users due to its look. People have considered it as one of the visually and physically dangerous tools. Such an image seems coming from its claw.

Instead of exposing claw, Claw-in-hammer simply keeps its claw inside the frame of the head and still performs its duty and it also does functions of both a claw hammer and double-face hammer. Claw-in-hammer separates itself from other ordinary hammers in structural and safety aspects. A groove on the head was designed to fit the variety size of nails smallest nail up to the biggest.
