Craftsman Flex Claw Hammer

Hammers are simple tools that do one or two things fairly reliably, notably bashing small metal pins into other things (and also pulling them back out). The Craftsman Flex Claw Hammer imaginatively expands on these functionalities by the inclusion of a rotating claw that can be turned and locked to one of four different positions by pressing on a release on the hammer, all in order to get the right angle for the job. It’s also got a large striking face for driving nails, a magnetic nail starter to spare your fingers, and a grippy dual-material handle that soaks up some of the impact force of repeated blows.
