Hammer Fist Multi Tool Review
By Sarah Listi 6/9/2023
I love a good multi-purpose tool. Toss one in your tool bag or junk drawer and you will reach for it all the time. Like all tools, they aren’t all created equal, nor can they all tackle the same tasks. Today we’re going to take a look at a new multi-tool on the market in the Hammer Fist Multi Tool Review.
Let’s start at the beginning- Hammer Fist was invented/designed/created by Timothy Scott Stuart. Timothy has been designing his whole life- from creating a toy company named Unit Bricks, Inc, which specializes in STEM construction toys, to owning an interior design company called UB Design. He’s designed restaurants and other buildings as well, including indoor playspaces for McDonald’s.
Timothy thought outside the box and designed a hammer with a lower profile that can be used in tight spaces. What you see now in the Hammer Fist is a product born from several revisions, incorporating multiple accessories and additions along the way. The product name itself is derived from the Hammer Fist Strike in martial arts, something I found really interesting given all it can do!
Let’s dive in on what makes this tool unique!
This multi-tool is capable of tackling at least seven tasks- so it’s a great addition to any multi-purpose tool user.
The strike plate is heavy-duty and allows for hammering at 0-degree, 45-degree, and 90-degree angles. By utilizing its unconventional design, you’re able to maneuver and leverage arm strength in tight quarters.
Flip it over and it serves as a non-marring mallet.
The ergonomic grip not only allows for a comfortable feel but also opens the door to a wide range of users who may have difficulty handling a traditional hammer. The unique grip, along with the weight distribution makes it user-friendly when it comes to someone with weaker hand strength or fine motor skills challenges. Such as kids, the elderly, someone struggling with arthritis, carpal tunnel, etc.
If measuring, you can use it as a metric or SAE ruler as well as a 90-degree square.
Built-in dual nail puller that also serves as a bottle opener. Also built into the strike plate is a hex driver.
You can find the Hammer Fist online at Home Depot for $20 or check out the Hammer Fist Website for more retailers as they become available.
All in all, the Hammer Fist is a very versatile multi-tool that takes advantage of all surfaces to serve a purpose. With its small footprint yet incorporating many tools into one, this should do wonders to reduce clutter in anyone’s drawer or toolbox. With its endless possibilities of use, the Hammer Fist is easy to reach for.
As a mom of a child with Autism, I specifically found the Hammer Fist fascinating. For a lot of children on the spectrum, fine motor skills can present challenges. Over the years, I have learned so much about the adaptive measures out there to make a variety of tasks less arduous. The Hammer Fist is one of those products that can benefit users learning a new skill that may be struggling with a traditional approach, as well as experienced users that may need to make adjustments to their process. We see adaptations happen in technology often, but I really love seeing the same effort being applied to traditional skills, like home improvement too.
The Hammer Fist is a great tool to keep around, need to quickly hang a picture, or add nails to a baseboard in a strange corner you can’t easily reach? Hammer Fist can help. It can pull nails, take quick measurements in centimeters and inches, and open a bottle too, or tighten or loosen a screw with the 1/4 inch hex bit holder. The grip is very comfortable to use, and the thumb rests make a huge difference when trying to get an optimum grip and strike power every time. My favorite feature though, is 100% the dual strike faces. I love being able to flip the tool to use a softer face when needed or to stick to the harder, metal-plated face when I need all the force I can get out of every swing.
For virtually any tool user, homeowner, and jack of all trades, the Hammer Fist is a great addition to your tool chest, offering 7 features in a single tool. Over the last few months, I’ve used the Hammer Fist in a huge range of ways and find it surprisingly capable, and in some cases, far easier to use than the traditional counterpart. Definitely a perfect addition to my everyday tool bag!
The Hammer Fist is a grip tool with three steel strike plates, all positioned at different angles for driving in a nail, and all with surface areas small enough to indicate to me that whenever your hand is beating like a hammer, your heart will be too. Because how many pounds until you end up just off enough that it's your un-Hammer-fisted flesh hitting the hardware instead?
And even if you manage to hit metal-to-metal every time, without missing once, won't there be some increasingly uncomfortable reverberation traveling from your strike point up into your bones with your hand so ergonomically integrated into the hammering process?
Hammer Fist creator Timothy Scott Stuart built his design around the olden days practice of hammering objects with a rock. Its name comes from the Hammer Fist Strike used in martial arts. In addition to hammering, the Hammer Fist has several other functions that make it, despite my ragging, a pretty cool multi-tool.
You can also use the 5" x 3-1/2" x 1-5/8" Hammer Fist as a non-marring mallet, 90-degree square, SAE and metric ruler, dual nail puller, bottle opener, and hex driver.

The Best New Home and DIY Innovations We’ve Seen This April
By Perri Kressel 4/28/23
A handheld DIY gadget reimagined this classic multitool design.
What happens when you combine a hammer and your fist? Simply named the Hammer Fist, this first-of-its-kind tool can tackle a lot more than you think, making it suitable for small household tasks and jobsites. It hammers, measures, opens bottles, and pulls nails, with a non-marring mallet and comfortable handle for a steady grip. Plus, its compact size is great for small spaces.

What is the Hammer Fist? The Hammer Fist is a multi-tool that allows a user to perform a wide range of tasks, with the primary intended use being a hammer and nailer puller. However, this isn’t your traditional hammer and claw tool. This has a unique design that allows it to fit in your hand and offer more control with less weight, hence the name, Hammer Fist. This design doesn’t just break the mold of a hammer, but it offers some other useful tool functions that are integrated right into the Hammer Fist.
The Hammer Fist weighs in at 12 oz. and is made with ABS plastic for durability and longevity.
The integrated rubber grip on the Hammer Fist serves several purposes. First and foremost, it provides a comfortable and secure grip for the user, allowing them to maintain control of the tool during use. Additionally, the rubber grip helps to absorb shock and prevent slippage, which can be especially important when striking hard surfaces.
As you can see a thick metal plate covers two sides and one 90° corner.
While you can “hammer” or “strike” on three sides, one end is covered with the metal plate for “hard” strikes and the other is the ABS plastic for “soft”, non-marring strikes. So as you grip the tool, you can easily control where and how you hit the item you are trying to sink, such as a nail, drywall anchor, or many other items.
Besides hammering, another cool feature is the 90° angle. This is very convenient when you need to position your materials correctly and/or check your work for accuracy. You can also use it to assist in holding and positioning your materials during your project.
On the bottom, there are marks for measuring. One side is Metric and the other is SAE.
When it comes to hammering nails, you will inevitably need to pull a few as well. So they integrated a nailer puller on the bottom of the tool.
They even thought about different types of attachments so you can put a bit into the hex slot and use this with screws if needed or other accessories that use hex bits.
While I think this is a cool tool and offers a lot of features, one of my favorites is the bottle opener. Because if you are like me, after a job, I like to sit back with a cold one and admire my work.

Hammer Fist was invented by Timothy Scott Stuart, the owner of Unit Bricks, Inc., who creates developmental STEM toys for kids of all ages. He found himself in a situation where he needed a hammer and all he could find was a rock. From that rock, and through many iterations, he designed what is now Hammer Fist. The first versions were made of carved wood, then welded, then cast. He added many accessories, and the adaptive grip that allows anyone to hold it comfortably. The product name is derived from the Hammer Fist Strike in martial arts.
“It’s more than just a hammer; it’s a tool that can be used in tight spaces where other hammers can only dream of going,” said Stuart. “The Hammer Fist is a utility tool that turns your fist into steel. It’s perfect for situations where one would have limited hammer-swing space.”
When Stuart was constructing a new restaurant in Florida, where he resides, Hammer Fist was the only hammer used on the building site.
