Since 1901, Stiletto Tools has been the "Standard of the West", supplying the tools that built the homes and businesses of early California and manufactured the agricultural implements that fed those pioneers.
Stiletto Tool Company proudly traces it's history to the earliest days of the California Gold Rush. Since that time, they have provided professionals, homeowners and do-it-yourselfers the tools that have literally shaped the building of the West. Today, Stiletto's line of Titanium striking tools continues that tradition into the 21st Century.
Stiletto Tools has developed a line of lightweight Titanium hammers. These new hammers are in a class by themselves, with features like improved balance, better face hardness and durability, stronger head-to-handle connection, more accurate nail pulling performance, and of course our signature magnetic nail slot. These lighter tools have the power to drive framing nails with the ease of a heavier steel framing hammers, with better control and accuracy.
These features make these tools ideal for the Professional Framer, Remodeler, and Finish carpenters. Stilettos are professional tools, and hard working men and women in the building industry will find they are more easily able to manipulate these lighter tools and still drive nails like a seasoned carpenter.
Why Titanium, you ask?
Titanium hammer heads, at nearly half the weight of steel, have ten times less recoil shock than steel, significantly reducing the risk of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and other stress related injuries. With a common steel hammer, up to 30% of the kinetic energy created by the user's swing can be lost to recoil vibration, which can be transferred down the handle to the users arm. This energy that is normally lost to recoil with Steel, is more efficiently transferred to the nail using a Titanium hammer. This is why the Stiletto Titanium will drive nails as well as heavier hammers without the extra effort and weight.
Research has shown that injury to shoulder, elbow, and wrist is caused by prolonged use of heavy hammers. Stiletto Titanium hammers can actually help alleviate repetitive motion injuries, and reduce muscle and joint soreness at the end of a workday, making these powerful yet lightweight tools well worth the price.
