790 / Carpenter’s roofing hammer

790

Discipline: Product

The solid-steel 790 roofing hammer with leather handle embodies and expresses the tradition, perfection and innovative power of German tool forging. Forged from quenched and tempered steel, the polished solid steel handle is sheathed in a quality leather grip made of untreated and wear-resistant stiff leather. The combination of polished steel with the natural warmth of leather also produces tangible ergonomic and practical benefits. For instance, the non-twist leather grip – thanks to a patented locking cap that holds the leather plates – dampens vibrations and allows for tireless use. In addition the leather absorbs moisture and moulds itself to fit the owner’s hand. A particularly beneficial side effect: each of these masterpieces becomes unique with usage over many years.
