Every shop has a hammer. But not every shop has a 44 Bikes Titanium DEAD BLOW. Made right here at 44HQ in New Hampshire out of 3Al-2.5V Titanium, and carefully anodized with a purple or blue fade, these hammers are meant for the discerning tool aficionado. They come with a soft orange replaceable head and a fixed titanium head. The replaceable heads are made in Central Falls, RI from the venerable Lixie Hammer Company. The grips are made in the USA for Wolftooth Bicycle Components. Both have been carefully selected for their fit and finish. The 44 DEAD BLOW has a 10″ handle and weighs approximately .7 lbs / 11oz [.3kg / 317.5g]. This one’s sure to turn heads and is a big flex with the co-worker in the shop. *Limited quantities. One DEAD BLOW per order.

*These are limited quantities. I will be making a larger batch depending on how quickly these sell. If you miss this first limited batch, I appreciate your patience as I work towards a second larger batch.
Care instructions: If the anodizing begins to look dull or not as radiant, remove the Lixie head, and simply clean the head and handle with Simple Green in warm water. Dry with a clean rag or paper towel. Apply a liberal amount of Windex glass cleaner (the ORIGINAL formula) either directly to the hammer or to a paper towel, and wipe down all exposed surfaces. Allow it to flash and dry. This should restore the finish to its glow. Please note that anodizing on titanium is susceptible to oils. It will not harm or damage the finish but it will dull it immediately. Follow the care instructions above. Also please note that although it is durable and a protective oxide layer, it can be abraded/scratched. Again, this will not harm the hammer or the material, but be mindful of abrasive surfaces.
Replace the polyurethane Lixie head as needed with your choice of durometer (they are color-coded and available from McMaster-Carr.) The thread is 5/16″-18 and the head has a 1.25″ OD. The grip is replaceable as well so any common bicycle grip will work. Put your favorite on as a replacement!
