ISO 15601, TS 5-2
Steel wedge fixed head
Special tool steel construction offering excellent durability
Ashwood handle offering high impact and shock absorbance
Induction hardened striking faces with flat and rounded sides
Versatile hammer to suit a range of applications
A ball-peen hammer is sometimes known as a machinist's hammer, due to its common use in metalworking. As the pein hammer's head is hardened, its striking face is harder than a standard claw hammer, they are more suited to driving chisels and rivets, and were traditionally used for hardening metal by impact in metal fabrication processes. The ball end of the hammer is suitable for more controlled 'glancing blows' where precision is needed, such as expanding metal to work out dents.
The ball pein hammer is useful for
Special tool steel, induction hardened striking faces
Handle protector, ashwood handle, steel wedge fixed head
For use on cold chisels, punches, rivets and shaping metal

What sizes are available?
Is the head interchangeable?
This range of RS PRO ball pein hammers feature fixed steel wedge heads that are non-removable.
What is the difference between ball-pein and cross-pein?
Cross-pein refers to the head horizontal to the handle, typically used by blacksmiths to stretch material with lateral expansion. A ball-pein has a round head used for hammering and shaping sheet metal, rounding off the edges or closing rivets.
What is the advantage of hickory wood handles?
Hickory is ideal for high-impact short-handled tools, as it is rigid and shock absorbing ensuring excellent user comfort and control. Tools with a hickory shaft are very durable and offer excellent impact resistance.
