Though he'll probably stick with Mjolnir for wailing on Loki, if Thor were a construction worker I bet he would use one of Wilton's BASH Unbreakable Sledge Hammers. Touted the toughest sledge ever built, BASHes with heads ranging from 2-1/2 to 20 pounds sport molten steel reinforcement bars at their handles and locking steel plates securing heads to handles, the combined effect of which guarantees the two will never separate. Wilton will even back the promise with a $1,000 payout to anyone whose hammer breaks during an overstrike.

BASH Sledge Hammer Hi-Vis heads are drop forged from 46 HRC steel and coated with the skin of a Ghostbusters Slimer. Beneath the safety plate that secures them to their handles lie anti-vibe necks that absorb impact to reduce worker fatigue, and no-slip grips made of vulcanized rubber to help prevent flyaways. Good lookin' out, Wilton, as I'm pretty sure the unbreakability of a sledge hammer would indicate the proportionately increased fragility of anything with which it comes into contact. Handle lengths come in 12", 16", 24", 30", and 36", some with variable head weights. All BASHes have been tested to 25,000 overstrikes.

I wonder if I could use a BASH like the SISU War Hammer to get (more) jacked at the gym. Because I think the green heads are a really nice touch. Like introducing a peacock element to the otherwise uninteresting sledge hammer. I feel they might get me a little more attention from the girls in the weight room doing bicep curls with 5 lb dumbbells. Oh, and speaking of girls, in return for this glowing review, I would like to request that Wilton add all of my ex-girlfriends' names to a database of those blacklisted from purchasing a BASH.
