These are the perfect Handle replacement for your RG Driving Hammer.
No discussion of superior design would be complete without speaking of the handle. The ergonomic design of the handle will enable the farrier to work more easily and with less fatigue. Each handle is hand shaped and sanded. The sides are flattened which allows the hammer to square it's self up in the farrier's hand thus enabling the nail to be driven with better accuracy.
The heel of the "Journeyman" handle is rounded which in turn takes the snap out of the wrist as the nail is driven and relieves shock the farrier's wrist has to absorb as with a conventional handle. After the handle is shaped it is then flame scorched to open up the pores of the wood. It is then immersed in boiled linseed oil in order to restore the wood's natural characteristics and extend the handle's life. It is finally finished by being steel wooled by hand and then again hand rubbed to a smooth fine furniture finish. The replacement handles are also finished to the same exacting standards as those that are installed in a new hammer.
Note there are 2 types of handles and to choose the one depending on if you have the 6 oz or the 9 oz hammer.
- 6 oz - comes with 1 metal wedge and 1 wood wedge
- 9 oz - comes with 2 metal wedges and 1 wood wedge
