Hardware & Hand Tools
First, the pronunciation. It’s “Duh-LOO-gee.” And if it sounds different, that’s because it is different. In fact, for dead-center accuracy and pure striking power, Dalluge decking and framing hammers are in a class by themselves. Designed by a professional carpenter for professional carpenters, Dalluge hits the word “balance” right on the nose, with head-to-handle weight ratio so precise, you’ll swear you’re swinging a much lighter hammer. The result is surer, deeper, more powerful nail driving, with less strain on the arm and shoulder.
Dalluge. Ok, so it’s a little tough to pronounce. But it’s one tough hammer.
Since 1849, Stiletto Tool Company has been providing professionals with the highest standard in premium titanium hand tools. They set the standard with their line of premium titanium hand tools that span numerous trades such as framing, remodeling, finish work, siding, demolition, concrete, and drywall. These include hammers, nail pullers, utility/pry bars and grips. Their tools are performance engineered and hold numerous patents including our all Titanium Tibone hammer, 180° Side Nail Puller, and the Dimpler on our Clawbar.
Many people wonder why they should pay a premium for titanium hand tools. The answer is simple: 45% less weight while providing the same striking force and strength as steel. Titanium tools also produce 10 times less recoil shock. These features help reduce carpal tunnel syndrome and tennis elbow which means less down time, more productivity, and most importantly LESS PAIN while working.
Since 1869, the Vaughan family has been committed to producing hand tools that proudly state "Made in the USA". Innovation, ingenuity and manufacturing have long been the foundation and cornerstone for America's success. This success did not come easy but rather through hard work, perseverance and determination. The American manufacturer, including Vaughan, is a reflection and an extension of the pioneer spirit. Preservation and support for this vital part of our economy is key to keeping the integrity of our roots intact. If we continue with outsourcing we will erode the foundation of our Country.
Vaughan & Bushnell Manufacturing is a modern day testimony to the pioneer spirit. In spite of an unfair playing field, where imports have taken over, Vaughan continues to thrive and deliver top quality products. Vaughan is committed to providing American made products, comprised of American raw materials. Vaughan products are produced with the highest standards, in compliance with Government mandates.
