Redback Maxistrike 20 oz Rip Hammer
What do you do when a motorcycle accident ends your carpentry career? Sit on the couch and pound beers for the rest of your life? For us, yes, but thankfully Jake Tyson is a little more motivated. He founded Redback Tools and managed to bring innovation to the most basic tool, the hammer.
The result of his work is the Maxistrike hammer, a tool capable of hitting a nail that is obstructed by a pipe, duct work, a joist, or whatever.
The hammer is usually $25, but for some reason, Amazon is giving them away for just under $6. We're not sure why, or how long it's going to last, but it's probably something worth jumping on.
We still prefer this hammer.
The guys over at The Hardware Aisle have a review of the Maxistrike here.
