Claw-IN HAMMER / hammer


Among the hammers, claw hammers are used for general purposes but its existing design is visually threatening and actually dangerous.

Claw-IN HAMMER presents a new hammer design in a safe shape by putting the rake part with a groove into inside of the head of the hammer. We can pull out a nail after inserting the head of a nail into the head of the hammer, which applies principles of the lever.
Because it does not have the part that is jutted out like rake in the existing claw hammer, you can keep it more safely and when you use it, it is much less likely to be dangerous because of the rake part.
