Ball pein hammers come in all shapes in sizes. That includes budget-friendly tools with fiberglass handles and a Stanley hammer like the Proto line. This set has tech that will make your job easier, and it’s hard to argue with their style…

Tools are supposed to be functional, not fancy although it’s safe to say nobody wants ugly tools in their box or bag. The Stanley Proto J1304AVPS Ball Pein Hammer set are the best-looking peens we’ve seen, and they will last twice as long as others given the build quality and design.

Proto went with a one-piece design for this steel hammer set, so there are no weak spots. The heads are heat-forged, and nickel plated with a rim tempered striking surface. This increases the durability while decreasing the chance at damage from a bad strike. They are Pro level tools and ones that won’t jar you with every strike.

Every hammer on our list has some form of vibration dampening tech – wooden handles aside. In this case, you’ll get a patented antivibration tech that dampens your delivery and keeps your arms fresh. You’ll be thankful for with as the biggest hammer has a 24-ounce head and weighs 2.5 pounds.

On that Note…

This set includes four tools with 8, 12, 16 and 24-ounce hammer heads. The 24-ounce hammer is 13-24/32” long while the 8-ounce hammer head has a total weight of 1.2 pounds and is 11 inches long. As with other branded sets, you can pick up matching hammers with a 4 or 32-ounce ball peen hammer.

If you’re serious about your trade, you need good tools, and you’ll be hard pressed to find a better set than this one. Sure, there are cheaper sets, but these are one-piece, and that anti-vibration tech is well worth the money. They are also warrantied for life although you shouldn’t ever need to put that to use given the build quality.
