These hammers are from a tree once used for maple sugaring, and after being harvested was underwater from flooding from Hurricane Irene in 2011.
The grips are Aromatic Red Cedar, a wood from Eastern Redcedar trees that is commonly known as the wonderfully aromatic wood that lines cedar chests and closets to repel moths. It is also used as fenceposts, outdoor furniture, bird houses, and bows due to its resistance to rot, as well as specialty items such as hammered dulcimer hammer grips.
