Is it ok to hit an A3400 wood wedge with an ordinary hammer? I am worried about either the hammer head or wedge shattering.

Hi John, you are not going to transfer enough energy using a normal 16oz or similar hammer, unless you are only trying to split kindling wood. You should be using a sledge hammer with a heavy head 4 – 10lbs [1.8-4.5kg]. Always wear safety goggles.
