Generally, copper is considered to be non-sparking. However, The Hammer Source does not guarantee any hammer to be non-sparking. Hammers can pick up other materials during use and those materials, like iron or steel, can be imbedded in the copper and cause sparks. Soft metal hammers like Copper, Aluminum and Brass should be reground and dressed before each use in a volatile environment.
The Copper hammers at The Hammer Source are Copper Alloys, as are most metals with copper- like Brass, Yellow Brass, Red Brass, Bronze, Nickel Aluminum Bronze NAB). The Hammer Source Copper hammers that are 1/2 to 5 pounds are Copper Alloy 836 which is 85% Copper, 5 % Tin, 5 % zinc and 5% lead, known as Red Brass. This alloy is more durable than pure copper yet softer than yellow brass and NAB.
Hammer Source hammers bigger than 5 lbs, those that are 6 to 24 lbs. are higher copper content- in the 96-98% range. Other metals are added to copper to facilitate the casting process.
