“Shark” Protects Your Fingers While Hammering

“Shark” Protects Your Fingers While Hammering

Use a hammer long enough and you're bound to one day miss the mark and "nail" one of your fingers or thumb instead. Designer Matthias Pinkert designed the ingenious "Shark", which looks strikingly like a staple removed, to prevent errant strikes to the wrong target...

The other bonus of using the Shark is that it keeps your nails or screws perfectly aligned, so you don't end up with the Leaning Nail of Pisa. Let's hope this concept makes it to the market soon...we'd gladly add it to our toolbox.
