The Wilton B.A.S.H. Sledge Hammers with Unbreakable Handle Technology feature a steel core design that prevents breakage during overstrikes, which is the most common cause of failure in wood and fiberglass handled sledge hammers. To address hammer head dislodgement, B.A.S.H. Sledge Hammers feature a hardened steel safety plate that secures the head with six steel rods. Ergonomic, full-length, textured rubber, non-slip handle grips are standard on all BASH Sledge Hammers. These grips are made of vulcanized rubber and resist oil and other solvents. Vibration from striking is dampened by the handle’s anti-vibe neck.
