Hammer: 16oz Steel OR 10 oz titanium
Do you need a steel or titanium hammer? That's easy. How often do you use a hammer? Once or twice a month or 3-5 times weekly?
If you rarely use a hammer, then go for a good quality steel hammer (16 oz); save the bucks. But if you find yourself hammering on a regular basis, spring for the titanium, which costs about 4 times as much.
A 10 oz titanium hammer has the same driving power as a 16 oz steel hammer! Less weight= less fatigue.
A titanium is proven to deliver less vibration, less recoil and less shock to the arm. Your body will thank you later for using a titanium hammer now.

So what are they, exactly?

So they are a great alternative to heavy work gloves for a job requiring good dexterity but you want some protection from dirt, grease, minor cuts and scrapes.
I keep a pair of these in my back pocket and use them almost daily.
Try Gorilla Gloves, you'll love them too...
