Hammers is slang for testicles. It can refer directly the organs, or it may also mean to have courage and fortitude (much as to the saying 'to have balls'). Related terms include Hammer-pouch (in reference to scrotum) and brass hammers courage when odds are really against a person. Some say one has to have brass hammers to walk the streets at night. Hammers are kept in a hammer-pouch. Some are said to have iron hammers between their legs. Someone may have solid hammers. One's hammers can feel like they are freezing off. One's hammers can clench up.
