Every so often, I find something that I don’t need, but I buy it anyway. (Actually, that happens quite often.) I am the exact opposite of that tire-kicker guy that will walk around a gun show at 7:00 am, pick up a knife to look at it for fifteen minutes and go “I like it, but I don’t know what I would use it for,” then put it down and walk away.
Well guess what, if you are one of those tire-kickers, this article contains a Zombie tire thumper to help you along your day. See, I always have you guys in mind, this article is for you.
Hardcore Hammers is a badass American company with a store front in Hillsboro, Illinois. That’s right, you can walk in and check out their goods with your very own roughneck hands. If you don’t know what you’d do with a hammer or an axe, then you probably should have your man card taken away from you. This particular set is their Zombie combo pack. Basically it’s just a fun-colored set of their high quality 100% American-made tools.

We’ve also incorporated a nail/tent stake puller and the hammer end (of course) has our patented recessed striking face. At 19oz on an 18″ handle, it’s perfectly balanced for any job.
