I think that's the point. A sledge is for striking. It isn't a
claw hammer & it has no peening head, nor a chipping head. Both sides
are built just to strike. I've seen some definitions that say a
sledgehammer has a long handle, but I've always called my
short-handled 3 pounder a sledge.
Now. . . where do I draw the line between sledges & mallets? I
probably would call anything with a metal head a sledge & a soft
[plastic, rubber, leather, wood] head a mallet.
