Anyone who's worked on a project, whether it's a simple chair or a sophisticated piece of furniture, knows the importance of a hammer. Each swing counts, and when using a sub-par tool that might break or has a loose grip, accidents become more and more likely to happen. 

Here, we've compiled some great hammers that are reliable and up to the task. If you're into building stuff or tearing down walls, there's one for you on this list.

When it comes to basic carpentry, a classic claw hammer will do just the trick. This Stanley Claw Hammer with a wooden handle weighs a kilogram, which is the perfect weight for general wood crafting use. 

We also like its classic handle design that's easy to grip. It's a traditional tool that every household should have. But what makes it a winner is its price. For less than SGD 15.00, you get reliability from a well-known brand in the construction industry.
