The claw hammer’s design has gone mostly unchanged for over 500 years, but Craftsman believes it’s finally time for an upgrade. The introduction of a pivoting claw on its new Flex Claw Hammer lets you maximise your leverage when removing nails or prying boards at awkward angles.
Restoration Hardware’s fold-away harp toolkit is equal parts beautiful and practical. Inspired by 19th-century British design, the sleek instrument has a belt’s worth of tools in one handsome, stainless steel package.
I’m not what you’d call “coordinated”, so the prospect of hammering nails without worrying about how many fingernails I’ll lose in the process is, um, appealing. The Craftsman HammerHead G2 Auto-Hammer does that — just not terribly well.
