Hammer is an agricultural tool that deposits impact on an object. Hammer is used mainly for driving nails, fitting parts, forging metals and breaking apart objects. Though hammers are of different types, shapes and structures, they are normally designed specifically for single purpose. This implement serves as a basic tool for many professions.
