An international supplier of all types of tools, Estwing has been around since 1923, when it was established in Illinois, the USA by Ernest Estwing, a Swedish immigrant to America. Ernest was a self-taught engineer with innovative ideas. The company’s breakthrough moment came with its first production of hammers forged from a single sheet of steel that made it far stronger than the traditional wood handle ones. Thereafter, there was no looking back for Estwing.
The company operated through World War II and was used by Neil Armstrong for his mission to the moon. By 2014, Estwing had a portfolio of more than 100 unique products. Their popular brands comprise gloves and pneumatic nailers, with a range of knives just launched through its offices in several countries including the UK and Germany.
Estwing is preceded by its reputation, which has only grown more popular over almost a century. The company has its own manufacturing unit and has been innovative right from the start. This has given it the edge over others and secured it a place as a long-term player.
The company began by making a range of striking and struck tools, such as axes, claw hammers, pry bars and speciality tools for craftsmen and traders. By 2001, the latest patent from Estwing was a new shock reduction grip that reduced vibrations that arose on impact, even as it provided a comfortable grip. Durable and reliable, this grip set a new standard in ergonomically designed hammers that have yet to be matched today. Estwing also has to its credit a collection of nylon vinyl grip tools that have been developed from a newly created material for longevity and ease of use. It has its manufacturing facility at Illinois, USA, where its team of engineers continue the tradition of creating tools that are easy to grip, requiring less strength, while being extra functional.
The entire list of tools by Estwing include –
