The humble driving hammer has evolved significantly!
The Shanghai March driving hammer is very well balanced with the centre of gravity well forward towards the face. This aids with delivery of the short, sharp blows needed to rapidly drive the nails with minimal disturbance to the horse.
Moreover, this hammer’s clench processing capabilities are exceptional. The claw is sharp enough to effortlessly wring off nail ends and is designed to freely let go of cut off points. It is shaped to catch the wrung off ends so there should be no dropped nail ends from this hammer!
An interesting new concept is the ‘tessellated’ face that quickly moulds to suit the operator’s individual swing and optimise the angle of nail head engagement. This feature basically customises the hammer for your own use and the more you use it, the better it works!
