"15 years ago I set out to make a better hammer.
As a carpenter, I prefer wood handled hammers over steel or plastic, but didn’t like frequently replacing handles due to wear and breakage. I’m also a designer, so I sought to fix the problem and add maximum utility.
Douglas hammers are the result of my efforts. Douglas hammers feature the strongest wood handle system available, with an American Hickory handle designed for durability, low vibration and power. The unique integration of the head and handle provides over-strike protection for a stronger, longer-lasting, hammer
The Douglas design has earned a number of U.S. and international patents for design and utility and has additional patents pending. This hammer was available briefly under another name and I was overwhelmed by the positive response from carpenters and other trade professionals."
