Iron Sledgehammers are Goron-made hammers that can be found in all the major populated settlements of Hyrule.[citation needed] They are reasonably durable, and good for breaking open Ore Deposits. Despite being crafted by Goron blacksmiths, they appear to be favored most by Hylians, such as Bolson, Karson and Hudson. Iron Sledgehammers are two-handed Weapons, meaning they can't be used in conjunction with a Shield. They were originally used for mining,[1] but the Gorons of the Southern Mine have found more use in Pickaxes.[citation needed]

Befitting their original purpose as a mining tool, the Iron Sledgehammer has a hidden property that increases its damage dealt by four times when used against the ore deposit atop a Stone Talus, as well as immediately destroying Stone Pebblits.

Iron Sledgehammers have a metal head and a wooden pole, but are considered metal weapons. This means they won't burn, Magnesis will move them, and they will attract Lightning during storms.
