Dead Blow Hammers

Buy Dead Blow Hammers here at The Hammer Source.

Dead Blow hammers have a chamber in the head of the hammer that contains loose material like sand or steel shot. The purpose of the loose material is to stop the rebound of a strike; the shot shifts forward on impact to absorb the recoil and stop the hammer from bouncing.
