The Evolution Claw Hammer aims to reduce workplace injury incidence commonly associated with striking hand tools and keep the trade professionals on their tools longer and safer than ever before. It is a challenge to constantly find ways to make manual work easier, safer, to protect the worker from potential injury or strain from Repetitive Strain Injuries and Cumulative Trauma Injuries as experienced with occupational users of striking hand tools. Therefore there is a need to protect both professional and casual users of hand held striking tools from unnecessary injury caused by both vibration transfer and poor grip ergonomics, so this design aims to satisfy these design deficits in contemporary claw hammer manufacturing with elegant and radical, yet extremely robust and practical design solutions. Personal safety is a priceless commodity, especially in the workplace, so any investment in worker safety and potential injury mitigation is an investment in good health. The Evolution Claw Hammer is constructed of either feather weight investment-cast aerospace engineered titanium or polished stainless steel. It features an ultra-light weight skeletonised trussed throat and handle construction with a cavity head recess to reduce unnecessary weight, better balance weight distribution, dampen harmful vibration transfer to the user and has a unique oversize "D" shaped strike face, enabling better nail head contact in confined spaces and reduces the chance of overstrike and potential hand injury. The titanium construction is almost 45% lighter than steel, enhances the strike force by 30% and dampens vibration considerably compared to steel. The domed curvature of the face to claw ensures no damage is done to the timber surface upon nail extraction, unlike traditional hammer design. It is forward weighted and features a curvaceous ergonomically engineered grip, designed in three sizes and shape profiles, constructed of co-molded polyurethane elastomer.
