Stiletto 18″ TIBONE TBII-15 Hammer , Stiletto Tools, $263

Until I saw this tool I thought a hammer was just a hammer, but this one is something special. Made of titanium, it provides the striking force of a hammer twice its weight, and has some neat features built into it as well. You can stick a nail to a magnet mounted in the top, then run it through a slot in the top of the hammer head for one-handed nail setting. It also has a patented side pull nail remover. This is a hammer you’ll own for the rest of your life.
