  • Patent number: 6363817
    Abstract: A system for absorbing shock including a resilient member positioned between a portion of the head and a portion of the shaft of the tool. The resilient member dampens and absorbs vibration travelling from the head to the shaft and reverberations travelling through the tool. The system also includes a shock-absorbing member having an internal portion positioned within a cavity in the head of the tool and an external portion positioned on an upper surface of the head that dampens and absorbs vibration travelling within the head and reverberations travelling through the tool. The system further includes a bonding material filling spaces with the cavity and a channel within the head that further dampens and absorbs vibration travelling from the head to the shaft and reverberations travelling through the tool. The system includes a handle portion that has a soft elastomeric outer coating that provides a comfortable grip to the user and hinders vibration from travelling from the shaft to the hand of the user.
