A claw hammer enables you to drive or pull nails, and it is often used by woodworkers. For each claw hammer, one side of the head is split and curved. Claw hammers are generally constructed with a head of titanium or other types of metal. They are lightweight and portable and may be used for residential and commercial applications. Additionally, a claw hammer may feature a shock- and vibration-resistant handle. A hammer sometimes comes equipped with a magnetic nail starter function. Hammers frequently include a rough edge on the face of the head that prevents nails from slipping out of place. They are sold in myriad sizes and styles as well.
