Ball Pein Hammers

The essential part of a hammer is the head, a compact solid mass that is able to deliver the blow to the intended target without itself deforming. The opposite or back side has a ball pein (peen).

As the impact between steel hammer heads and the objects being hit can, and does, create sparks, which in some industries such as underground coal mining with methane gas, or in other hazardous environments containing flammable gases and vapors, can be dangerous and risk igniting the gases. In these environments you should use extreme caution.

Ball Pein hammers serve as great planishing hammers as well. The head of these hard-faced hammers are made of heat treated forged high-carbon steel or alloy steel.
