Council Tool DF Sledge Hammer 36″ w/ Wooden Handle
4#/6# double-face sledge hammer with hickory handle.
Forged tool steel head, Made in the USA, with clear lacquer head to deter rust.
Striking face is precision machined with proper radius and chamfer (bevel), providing safer performance.
Heat treated after machining for increased depth of hardness. (Turning after hardening looks more attractive (on competitor’s tools) but leaves less depth.)
Heat treatment produces fine grain structure and Rc 46-54 (Rockwell) for safety and toughness.
36″ American-made hickory handle, kiln dried before turning. Eye section is then dried below 10% moisture content prior to assembly.
The handle is hydraulically inserted into the head and secured with a serrated aluminum wedge, providing a very secure mechanical bond. Approximately 1/2″ to 1″ of handle length is removed during assembly.
