Stiletto Mini-14 TiBone
If you've been yearning for the opportunity to spend over $250 on a hammer, your day is finally here. Stiletto Tools sells just the thing and it's called the Mini-15 TiBone and it retails for $262.50 ($274.50 once shipping is tacked on). Why so damn expensive? We suppose it's got something to do with the fact that it's entirely made of titanium, which, according to Stiletto, has 10 times less shock than steel. But in addition to that, there are also a number of other cool features.
While the Mini-15 comes equipped with the traditional nail pullers, there is an additional one located on the side of the head, specially designed for 16d nails. A quick jerk to the side and the nail is up. There is also a magnetic nail starter and an ergonomic rubber grip.
The most interesting feature of the hammer is that it has a replaceable face. When you first buy the hammer, you have the choice of getting the steel face either smooth or with a milled pattern on it, depending on your preference. Once that one gets all banged up, instead of getting a new hammer, you can just drop $40 and get another face.
We're confident that this is one hell of a hammer, but $275?
