Patent No. 5,906,144

Issued: May 25, 1999

Inventor: Nick W. Staviski, 102 Thayer Road, Erin, NY 14838 and Francis W. Staviski, 102 Wincoop Creek Road, Erin NY 14838

A toenail hammer having a head connected to a handle by a shank, where the shank is substantially bent such that, when toenailing in a confined space or around an obstacle the bent shape allows the nail being driven to be struck by the normal striking face of the hammer instead of the side face. The head and handle are in substantially the same relative alignment as in an ordinary hammer. An alternative embodiment positions the claw on the bent shank instead of the head.
