A Snap Hammer is a hefty hammer with a short handle. It has a sharply angled bludgeoning tip and a double jawed back.
Snap Hammers are specially designed tools for sundering weapons. They are made for breaking blades during combat and receive a damage bonus when performing this task. They are also more likely to score a critical hit when sundering bladed weapons.
It fails in giving bonuses when being used to attempt a sunder against regular ammunition or none bladed weaponry.
Snap Hammers may only receive their sundering bonus against weapons of a size category equal to its own. When used to sunder a weapon smaller or larger than its size category it does not receive the sundering bonuses listed above.
Furthermore, any use of a Snap Hammer that allows use of its sundering damage bonus, counts as a full-round action. For this reason, Snap Hammers do not give bonus damage when sundering by attack of opportunity, or with extra attacks, nor can it be done after movement or with a special maneuver.
