8# double face sledge hammer with fiberglass handle. Forged tool steel head, Made in USA, with clear lacquer finish to deter rust. Striking face is precision-machined with proper radius and chamfer (bevel), providing safer performance. Heat treated after machining for increased depth of hardness. (Turning after hardening looks more attractive (on competitor’s tools) but leaves less depth.)
Heat treatment produces fine grain structure and Rc 46-54 (Rockwell) for safety and toughness. 36″ American-made fiberglass handle, “jacketed style.” (Polymer is injection molded around fiberglass pultrusion, similiar to traditional wooden shape.) Handle is epoxy bonded to bare metal eye, creating an extremely strong chemical and mechanical bond. Meets or exceeds ASME B107.54-2001.
