American Hammer is offering an incredible deal right now with an interesting catch. If you promise to write an unbiased and honest review of your purchase, American Hammer will sell you any brass, bronze, or copper hammer under 2 pounds for $25, and that includes shipping fees.
If you’re in the market for a metal non-marring hammer, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better price than this. American Hammer’s distributors are probably not happy with this new direct sales promo, so keep in mind that the offer may be short lived.
In case you’re wondering how great of a deal $25 shipped per hammer is, check out some of the prices of American Hammer via Amazon, or via one of their suppliers: 24 oz brass hammer: $67.82; 16 oz bronze hammer: $57.65; 24 oz copper hammer with hickory handle: $42.31.

American Hammer is a USA-based tool company that specializes in non-marring and non-sparking hammers. Their hammers are designed to last beyond a lifetime and are intended for a wide audience, from those who rely on quality tools for their livehood, to DIYers and metal working hobbyists.
American manufacturers must bring back the quality of ‘once was’ and as equally important, value. – Ted Leitter, American Hammer President
So what prompted this deal? Well, it seems that American Hammer’s distributors have been marking up the tools a bit higher than expected. Ted Leitter, president of American Hammer, is unhappy about this, and wants to see their hammers’ retail markup cut down to more reasonable levels.
Ted mentioned that some suppliers feel that American Hammer’s products are just too good to be priced so low for average tool buyers. Most of all, Ted wants to emphasize that it is still possible to provide quality USA-made tools at affordable prices.
As mentioned, Ted and American Hammer will extend this deal ($25 shipped for any brass, bronze, or copper hammer under 2lbs) to anyone who is willing to offer a brief review.
This [promotional price] will serve as a wake up call to those suppliers who feel our hammers are just too good to be priced so low for the average tool buyer and forcing them to buy cheap imports. – Ted Leitter
