The B.A.S.H. Sledge Hammer is an indestructible tool for destruction. Considering how much the average sledge hammer goes through in a day, a construction worker or the average handyman could use some reassurances that it won't fall apart after a few blows. Although that may be an extreme case, this tool is such a staple that purchasing one that lasts would make a huge difference.

Developed by Wilton, the B.A.S.H. Sledge Hammer's longevity owes itself to its novel, heavy-duty handle, which is essentially made out of steel rods encased in rubber. Unlike traditional wooden handles that last around only 435 overstrikes and newer fiberglass handles that withstand around 6,800, the B.A.S.H. Sledge Hammer's steel and rubber handle can handle 25,000 or more overstrikes. It also has a neon green head for visibility and a tapered ridged neck for shock absorption.
