Japanese hammers come in a range of sizes, shapes and specifications. The traditional hammer, called a genno, has been used by Japanese craftsmen for centuries, and is similar in design to a small sledgehammer. Because of this tradition, most modern Japanese hammers follow a similar design - with the large, double-faced sledgehammer-like head being preferred over the claw hammer design people might be used to in the west.
One of the key features of Japanese hammers is their versatility. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, each designed for specific tasks. For example, dual-head hammers are very common in Japan. Dual-head hammers typically have one striking face made of metal (steel or iron), and the other made of plastic (typically resin) which can be replaced. But other variations of dual-head hammers are popular too, for example, plastic and rubber. The dual-heads make it possible to work on hard metals, and softer materials like wood and plastic, all with one tool.
The exceptional balance, durability, and versatility of Japanese make them a popular choice among woodworkers, metalworkers, and carpenters worldwide. Made in Japan genno, sledgehammers, ball peen hammers, and claw hammers are all incredibly strong and long-lasting.
