Yes, that’s right. I said “Fubar,” and I meant it. When Stanley Tools decided to redesign the hammer, they observed construction workers for some time. It turns out construction workers don’t use hammers to drive nails. They have pneumatic guns for that. But what they do use hammers for– and to great intent– is prying things apart, knocking holes in walls, and generally breaking stuff apart.

The Fubar answers this in a big way. International Design Magazine called it remniscent of a medieval axe, and when you see it, I think you’ll agree.

So, why go out and buy a Fubar? Because summer’s coming north of the Equator, and you’ve got projects to do. Big projects. Projects that will require, or may require, an element of breaking things apart. Is there nothing more primal? Pick it up, and break it out. This tool is a must for the DIY-er, the Maker, or a tool junkie.
