Claw hammer with vibration-damping fibreglass handle

2K fibreglass ✓ Carbon steel head ✓ Workshop quality ✓

The Högert claw hammer with a glass fibre handle and a head weight of 450 grams, with its typical head with a round face and wide, split fin, can be found in every cabinet maker's and joiner's workshop. The hammer owes this to its special head construction, which is designed to maximise surface protection during woodworking. The head with the strongly curved fin, which is perfectly designed for pulling nails from the heart, is forged from high-quality CS45 carbon steel. To increase the hardness of the striking surface, it is additionally hardened after forging, resulting in a hardness of 50-58 HRC. With a weight of 450g, the head strikes an ideal balance between precision and high impact force in terms of size and weight. Properties that are not only useful in the manufacture of furniture, making the hammer an excellent choice for many other applications as well as in the household.

As a professional tool for craftsmen, especially cabinetmakers and joiners, the claw hammer impresses with its excellent workmanship. The fibreglass handle is not only extremely robust, but also perfectly matched in length and diameter to the 450 gram steel head. The ergonomic shape, as well as the comfortable rubberised grip surface, allow the user to work without fatigue or pain and without strain on the joints. In addition, the grip surface contributes to a non-slip, firm grip, which again has a positive effect on handling and safety when using the hammer.

Features of the claw hammer with fibreglass handle from Högert

With the Högert claw hammer with fibreglass handle, we offer another workshop-quality fibreglass hammer in addition to the sledge hammer, roofing hammer, locksmith's hammer and rubber mallet. The hammer with a head weight of 450 g is forged with the highest precision from high-quality carbon steel. To maintain the attractive appearance of the shiny silver steel, it is coated with a robust clear varnish that protects the material from external influences and also creates a very even, smooth surface. This can really make a significant difference, especially with very delicate, soft woods. The approximately 28 cm long handle is firmly and securely connected to the head by a steel wedge and has a shock-absorbing effect thanks to its glass fibre core. The plastic that encases the glass fibre core is in the typical Högert blue and has enormous impact resistance and is also moisture-resistant and UV-resistant. In addition, the handle can be easily cleaned of dust and dirt to maintain the visual integrity of the tool.

The special feature of the claw hammer is the unusual shape of the head, which is fully customised for woodworking. Regardless of whether it is soft wood species such as pine or spruce, or hardwood such as oak, walnut or eucalyptus, the hammer with its round impact path and wide fin is designed to treat the surfaces as gently as possible on contact. A claw hammer is the best choice, especially for wood products with high demands on the surface quality and its integrity. The grooved track of a roofing hammer and the square shape of a locksmith's hammer would leave rough, angular notches if the nail were missed. The claw hammer's round track with its rounded edges is much gentler and also distributes the energy over the largest possible area to minimise the visible damage and the effort required to repair it with time-consuming grinding or planing. The fin, which is not used to strike with the claw hammer, but only fulfils the purpose of pulling nails and wooden dowels out of the wood, is split symmetrically for this purpose. The contact surface is very large so that the hammer head does not press into the surface when removing stuck nails. In addition, the fin is strongly curved like a claw. This also has a positive effect on surface protection, as rolling in a flowing motion achieves a high force with little effort, without leaving visible marks with the angular hammer head.

The robust 2K fibreglass handle plays a decisive role in a hammer where precision and high impact force are equally important. In addition to ergonomics, the handle length as well as the diameter and position of the grip surface are of great importance. If the handle is too long, a higher impact energy can be achieved, but this is at the expense of precision. This can be a major disadvantage with a claw hammer, which is primarily used for woodworking. The handle of our carpenter's hammer, as the claw hammer is also known, is optimised for the head weight of 450 grams. The grip surface at the end of the handle ensures a high degree of accuracy for both light and powerful blows. The non-slip rubber coating of the grip surface feels pleasantly soft and, thanks to the cross holes, impressively absorbs shocks and vibrations when swinging and hitting the impact path.

Use and handling of a claw hammer

A claw hammer is an indispensable tool in furniture joineries and for every carpenter. The hammer is a true all-rounder that is suitable for nailing and hammering in wooden dowels, lamellas or drive-in nuts as well as for removing nails and wooden dowels thanks to its track on one side. The hammer is simply turned and the split fin with the strongly curved shape is applied. Made from high-quality carbon steel and with a sturdy handle made from multi-component fibreglass, it meets even the highest demands without hesitation.

Small round track
With a diameter of 29 mm, the track is quite small in direct comparison to most other hammers with a similarly high head weight and is used for precision when driving nails into sensitive wood materials. Another difference is the different shape of the striking face, which is round rather than square. Here too, the reason lies in the main application. A square striking face could leave square, sharp-edged indentations in the wood if the target is missed. Thanks to the round head, the impact energy is always distributed over a wider area in the best possible way, so that the risk of nicks cannot be completely ruled out, but it can be significantly reduced. With a head weight of 450 grams, the hammer is suitable for setting fine steel pins, for example for nailing cabinet back panels or drawer bottoms, but also for hammering large nails into heavy, solid beams and offers a perfect balance between precision and impact force.

Curved, split fin
In contrast to a locksmith's hammer or roofing hammer, the very flat tapered fin is no longer used for striking. It is also far too strongly curved for that. Instead, it is used to remove nails without leaving visible marks on the wooden surfaces. To ensure this, the fin is quite wide and strongly curved. The gap in the centre makes the fin look like a claw, which is how the claw hammer got its name. To pull out a nail, the nail head is inserted as far as possible into the gap. This tapers towards the centre of the head so that both very large nails and very fine steel pins can be pulled out of the wood effortlessly. By gently rolling the curved head on the surface, the nail can be pulled out of the wood piece by piece in a very gentle manner. The long, sturdy handle creates a great leverage effect so that even large, stuck nails can be removed with little effort.

Joiner's hammer or claw hammer?
A claw hammer is unmistakable in terms of the hammer head. The round face, as well as the strongly curved fin, which is very wide and split in the centre, are perfectly matched to the processing of wood. In contrast to a square shape, the advantage of the round track is that there is significantly less risk of nicks being driven in. The wide fin also serves to protect the surface when a nail is to be pulled out of the wood and distributes the pulling force over a much larger contact surface compared to a roofing hammer. This is a particular advantage with softer woods such as spruce, fir or maple. When constructing roof structures and wooden substructures for drywall, this aspect may be negligible, which is why carpenters tend to use a roofing hammer. However, when manufacturing high-quality furniture from solid wood, the integrity of the visible surfaces is very important. These are typical carpentry tasks, which is why the claw hammer is also known to most people as a carpenter's hammer.

NOTE: A claw hammer is usually used by carpenters when working with wood, especially when joining wooden elements with nails. Even the best craftsman can make a mistake, causing the nail to bend or break, or the wood to splinter. For this reason, it is advisable to protect yourself from flying splinters and metal shavings by wearing personal protective equipment in the form of safety goggles and work gloves.

Storage and care of the claw hammer with fibreglass handle

Our claw hammer with fibreglass handle and forged carbon steel head is designed to meet the highest demands and impresses with its outstanding workmanship and durability. The hammer head has a robust layer of paint to protect the steel from external influences. The blue plastic coating on the handle is also extremely resistant. Apart from occasional cleaning with a damp cloth to maintain its appearance, the hammer does not require any special care. Over time, fine dust, especially damp wood dust, which is part of everyday life in a carpenter's workshop due to sawing, sanding, bevelling and drilling boards, battens and beams, can clog the cross holes in the rubberised grip surface, reducing the shock-absorbing effect. However, these can be cleaned very easily with a small screwdriver and a piece of kitchen roll wrapped around it.

WARNING: The claw hammer is perfect for hammering in or pulling out nails, but is absolutely not suitable for hammering into the track of another hammer or vice versa. This can have a negative effect on the otherwise very strong wedge connection between the hammer head and the handle, meaning that in the worst case scenario, the hammer head can become loose or completely detached from the handle.
