Because he can cous all his strength into the single, smaller point of the hammer head, thus causing more impact damage. Very useful for facing an enemy with a hard shell.

Same for the claw. Also allows him to stab and not just tear.

1. the wood handle would break from the force those behemoths can cause and a metal handle would probably bend under the stress.

2. the turtles giant fingers are gonna get slashed every time he extends his hands
and you can't tell me that weapon was designed for him. Anatomically that weapon is for human hands.

NERDIN OUT!!!!!

Might it break eventually? Sure. Still better to use that to soften him up first before breaking your hands on it.

And that claw actually does extend beyond his hand proper, just perhaps not his fingers. Which, given that even using his claws will require a slight curvature of the fingers to slash with (heh) is still fine.

I'm fairly interested what the story of this actually will be... That is clearly a mutant turtle with ninja weapon, but I'm uncertain if that one is even related to the four heroes.

Also, Bebop and Rocksteady as 'heroes of the day' would be fine as well.

That is IDW's version of Slash, so not one of the four Turtles but still related to them somehow. I suggest you to buy these books, everyone seems to enjoy it. :D Thanks!
