Japanese iron factory Ikeda, known for its precision metal processing and creating viral products, has developed a unique item: a metal hammer shaped like a banana. This unconventional tool, first made in 2019, mimics the shape of bananas grown in the Philippines.
Ikeda's range includes various metal replicas of fruits and vegetables, but the banana hammer stands out as their most popular product. It has gained enough interest to become commercially viable, leading to the creation of both standard and mini sizes, which also serve as paperweights. Priced at approximately $80 for the large version and $22 for the mini, these novelty hammers are available for purchase online.
