Milwaukee acquired Stiletto Tool in 2007.
Stiletto Tool, which specializes in titanium hammers and striking tools, launched their TiBone III framing hammers a few years ago, and recently launched a new TrimBone titanium hammer for finishing tasks.
There’s not a lot of cross-promotion between Milwaukee and Stiletto, leading to surprised reactions when tool users learn of the brands’ relationship.
I could not find news or press from the time, but here is what Milwaukee Tool has said in their Innovation & Product Development page:
In keeping with its mission of producing only high-quality heavy-duty products for professional users, Milwaukee branched into the hand tool market in 2007 by purchasing the Stiletto Tool Company, the leading manufacturer of innovative professional titanium hammers and other hand tools, stiletto.com.
Milwaukee updated their website a few years ago, but you can still see the cached page via the Wayback Machine internet archive.
Milwaukee Tool, a TTI company, also owns Empire Level and Imperial Blades. These acquisitions were made in 2014 and 2018, respectively.
