More Lump Hammers Coming on Friday
Posted on 24 September 2018
Our second big batch of Crucible lump hammers will go on sale at noon (Eastern time) on Friday, Sept. 28. The price is $85 plus shipping.Raney has been busy milling the heads for the lump hammers while at the same time trying to catch up on assembling dividers – we’re running low on those as well.
The handles are hickory, a species that has variations in color, from light tan to dark brown. Wood is a natural product – it has some variations in grain, and some of the handles have some slight curl to the grain. And the handles are hand-finished – they are not extruded like Play-Doh in a Fuzzy Pumper Barber Shop.
A couple quick notes on the lump hammers:
If your handle has a big chip in it, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. We missed that. But slight variations in color, grain and even the handle’s octagonal facets are part of the reason we like wooden handles.
Thanks to everyone who has purchased the lump hammers so far – I hope you are enjoying using them as much as we are. I recommend you keep it on your bench.
You’ll be surprised how many times you reach for it.
