Hammer ergonomics continues to improve

The latest designs have curved handles with textured grips for greater comfort and safety.


  • Ergonomic handles: For greater user comfort, hammer suppliers in China are offering designs with handles contoured to promote the natural positioning of the wrist and hand. Such products have grip areas covered with PVC, TPR or a combination of the two for better shock absorption. Textured surfaces improve traction and prevent slippage.
  • Enhanced durability: Heads are forged and heat-treated at 1,200 C to increase hardness and prevent chipping or cracking. Electrophoretic coating is applied on several releases for better resistance against rust and wear.
  • More multitools: To boost sales, many enterprises are leveraging their experience in hammer manufacturing and expanding into multitools. New models combine hammers with screwdrivers, pliers, wire cutters and knife blades.
  • Price forecast: Manufacturers see product quotes being relatively stable for the remainder of the year. Lower raw material rates are expected to offset the pressure resulting from the appreciation of the yuan against the US dollar.
