The Hammer is a broad mining tool. It harvests blocks in a wide range and is effective against undead. It is a Tier 2 Tool and can only be created in the Tool Forge.
Natural Ability: Area of Effect. The Hammer mines a 3x3 grid of blocks instead of a single block at a time. It works on the same Stone and Ores that Pickaxes do. Once the mining animation is completed on the source block the 8 surrounding blocks are also gathered. This patten can be horizontal or vertical, depending on the side of the block that is harvested and the other blocks around it. This will only mine blocks that the Tool's Mining Level will allow, and even then some blocks will not break. An example is mining netherrack with a stone hammer near cobalt ore and the cobalt ore not breaking.
Natural Ability: Smite. The hammer does extra damage to Undead mobs (Zombies, Zombie Pigmen, Skeletons, Wither Skeletons, the Wither Boss).
Mining Speed: The number shown seems to be the sum of the mining speeds of the head and plates divided by 7.5. Redstone adds (2 +.4 per level of the modifier) per 50. 2.4 at 50, 2.4 + 2.8 at 100, 2.4 + 2.8 + 3.2 at 150
