Now I am more of a meticulous worker than some so busting up large boulders is really not my thing. If I need that done I have a sledge in the jeep which I use, or better yet, I let one of the guys that trek with me do the heavy breaking. That serves two purposes. First it take the strain off me and secondly, it never fails to stroke their, i.e. the guys, egos. They make nifty man grunting sounds and this seems to make them feel good.
Anyway, this hammer is extremely versatile, very well balanced and it is certainly tough enough to get any job I want done and done well. I like the shortness of the shaft as it allows me more accuracy. Granted, there is less power delivered to the blow, but for me the accuracy is the big issue.
There are some maintenance issues as there are with any fine tool. Don't put this puppy away wet and as another reviewer pointed out, keep the corners on the head filed down to prevent burs, splinters and slippage.
The handle fits my hand perfectly and shock is kept to a minimum. I do have the leather belt case to go with it and it is very easy to pack.
I doubt if you will find a better tool for rock hounding on the market.
Readers do take warning though...as has been pointed out, this is not a child's toy and should be treated as such. The little ones need supervision and like the adults supervising them, they need to wear some sort of eye protection
This is a good product and the price is certainly right.
I would caution that 1) you should still wear eye protection when using this to chip ice...2) be careful what you hit when chipping the ice with the pick end...you don't want to puncture anything or otherwise damage an underlying surface...3) be sure to dry off the pick when done to keep it in top shape. :)
