Wood, plastic or metal?
Heavy wooden or plastic garden hammers are usually used to hit poles in the ground of a meadow or a fence.
To prolong the life of a wooden gardenhammer, it is always provided by a metal ring on both sides always (by doing this, it can not swell).
It is best not to use a metal hammer as this damages the wooden pole that you want to hit into the ground. By using a wooden or plastic hammer, you don't have this and your fence looks nicer off.
Do you want an indestructible garden hammer of which the handle can never get off? Then choose the topmodel with a fiber handle.
