The newest creation from BRC, The Pistolero!!! This hammer will change the hand stamping industry for good!! This hammer is specifically designed for metal stamping, and we have spent the last year developing it to cater to those unique needs, in that year we have been extremely intentional about taking into account all of the likes and dislikes, you the metal stampers, have mentioned about the current hammer options available, everything from weight, size of the handle, comfort and most important effiency, all of which we are very confident we have executed with a unique blend of precision and craftsmanship. The Pistolero is an all steel dead blow hammer, which will end that annoying vibration in the hands and wrists, it also takes away that bounce you get with traditional hammers resulting in ugly double strikes in your fine metals, as for weight this beauty weighs in at 2.5 pounds, but delivers the strike and force of a much larger hammer, which is great for all skills levels and hand strengths, the hammer face is made of high quality O1 tool steel and hardened and tempered to last a life time. The grip of the Pistolero, is short and compact, giving you precise aim and striking ability, And fits in the hand with maximum comfort. The grip is what we like to call a directional handle which we have adopted from the Blacksmithing trade, which keeps the hammer snug in your palm and reduces "hammer twists" if you strike a stamp at a strange angle and jerk your wrist which causes discomfort and discouragement. You can use the Pistolero on any size metal stamp, shot plates or metal dies, making it extremely versitile. We truly expect the Pistolero to set the standard for all metal stamping hammers from here on out. We would like to invite you to participate in the pre order of this revolutionary tool at a discounted price. The estimated time of arrival from our hands to yours, will be six to eight weeks. Each individual Pistolero is hand crafted and assembled to order. We thank you so much for your support and enthusiasm for the brand new Pistolero!!
