I noticed this ad for Wilton hammers.
In particular a set,
2-1/2 Lb sledge with 12 in. handle
20 oz ball pein with 14in handle
32 oz crossin pein with 16in handle
These hammers come in a Protective Carrying Case
Does a tool, that you beat things with, really need a "protective"
Perhaps this is really a commemorative set of hammers.
Go ahead and laugh, but I'd find it very handy. When we travel, I like
to have two or three hammers with us because you just never know when
you'll need one. Ice machine at the motel not dispensing? The 20 oz
ball pein will take care of it. Ever put your quarters in a soda
machine and nothing comes out? Don't get frustrated, just grab the
sledge and quench your thirst.
Since the have no sharp edges you can take the carry case on a plane
with you and it fits easily under the seat of in the compartment above.
Your multi-tool is banned but the hammers will be right with you when
you need them.
The open trade secret, if it's green, mark it up high!
They should have had a foam lined gray case, designed to be stackable.
I have had steel shanked hammers in the past, they really hurt the
hand and the wrist if you hit something wrong. Even hitting it
straight on is shocking enough.

Perhaps, but I haven't used one. I have hammers that I used when
welding or shaping molten metal in the past and they were harsh.
These are not one piece hammers, they have a piece welded on the
handle to stop the head from flying off, which made me shudder
thinking of what happens when you have a loose head on a handle.
Unbreakabler Handle Technology - Steel core eliminates breaking during
Trademark Green Head - Hi-Vis, drop forged 46 HRC steel head endures
the most demanding applications
Safety Plate - Secures head to handle preventing head dislodging
Ergonomic handle shaped and thickened for increased comfort, less
vibration, and improved grip
I'd rather have a "spring" style handle.
No-Slip Grip - Vulcanized rubber handle for secure grip while striking
Hard plastic carrying case for portability and storage
Maybe it's to keep the green paint from chipping? The product
"features" indicates the case is for portability and storage. You must
admit, it's a lovely collection--and the case makes it clear that each
hammer is one of a "set".
