These body of these hammers are made from a tree once used for maple sugaring and, after being harvested, was underwater from flooding from Hurricane Irene in 2011.
The grips are Padauk (pah-DUKE) - a West African hardwood sometimes called Vermillion for the red-orange color of the heartwood when freshly cut.
