Wilton, a brand typically known for their bench vises, has expanded their BASH lineup of hammers to include ball pein hammers, splitting mawls, brass-head sledge hammers, cross pein hammers, and a railroad spike maul.
When the BASH lineup launched over 3 years ago, the focus was on sledge hammers. The new Wilton BASH hammers aren’t too differently designed and are similarly designed for heavy duty applications.
Features include a steel-core handle with a non-slip rubber grip, a safety plate that prevented the hammer heads from dislodging, and anti-vibration strike technology.
One of the main selling points of the BASH hammers is the unbreakable handle, but really the hammers are nearly indestructible from head to hilt.
BASH Hammer Sizes
Ball Pein: 24 oz, 32 oz, 40 oz (all with 14″ handles)
Cross Pein: 2 lb, 3 lb (all with 16″ handles)
Splitting Maul: 6 lb 30″, 6 lb 36″, 8 lb 30″, 8 lb 36″
Brass-Head: 2-1/2 lb 12″, 4 lb 12″, 4 lb 16″, 6 lb 16″
Railroad Spike Maul: 10 lb, 36″
Given that B.A.S.H. stands for Bad Ass Sledge Hammer, we’re probably not going to see smaller-sized tools anytime soon. That’s a shame, because it would be nice if Wilton could scale the same comfort and strength into smaller ball pein hammers.
You can also find these hammers at industrial and independent suppliers.
