About Picard Tools

Founded in Wuppertal in 1857, Picard has embraced specificity. A quick browse through their catalog reveals one or more hammers specific to seemingly any trade that would have a need for a simple striking tool. Despite the fact that many of these designs have not remarkably changed over decades and even centuries, Picard has managed to refine and improve upon many of these hammers through the use of modern machinery, materials, and developments in alloying and heat treatment of metals. Entire sections of their catalog are devoted to tools for individual trades such as roofing, carpentry, cabinetmaking, metal working of all types, and even blacksmithing and farriery. Picard has also embraced current advances in ergonomics, creating designs that are lighter, quieter in use and more forgiving to joints and muscles in the course of everyday work.
