This hammer is an excellent complement to a full-fledged framing hammer. Because it has a shorter handle than the Estwing framing hammers, it works great for sheathing roofs and roofing, as well as other closer-in work. Still has the rip claw like a framing hammer. The 20 oz. weight gives it the right punch to drive nails without being unwieldy. The new shock-reducing handle does seem to work. Certainly softer than the old handle style.

I purchased my Estwing 20 oz. Vinyl Grip Rip Claw Hammer from a certain Blue store recently. Although it costs more than other hammers, the Estwing is superior due to its simple one-piece design. During a long day of installing wood siding with this hammer recently, I appreciated its flawless weight distribution and rigidity. The grip is of excellent design and proves comfortable day after day on the job-site. After a redesign from previous generations (which I have occationally used), the new grip material is softer, thereby reducing vibration noticably over previous models.

When I first started doing remodeling work, I just picked up a cheap fiberglass hammer at home depot. Later, after getting more into it I upgraded to an Estwing 20 oz hammer and let me tell you what a world of a difference it was. This hammer is balanced beautifully, the grip is comfortable and absorbs a good amount of shock, and the appearance of the hammer is very nice as well. My dad owns an Estwing hammer he had for many years and it still functions like new. Now, after driving many thousands of nails, my hammer is also still going strong. Many manufactures such as Kobalt, Bostich, Craftsman and various others have tried to copy the Estwing design and let me tell you, Estwing is still my favorite by far. If you are looking for an all-steel framing hammer, there is no other hammer on the market that I have seen or used that I like better - at any price. As long as you don't abuse it, it should last a lifetime. I liked it so much that I began purchasing several other models, and have recommended them friends and family. As long as their quality does not change for the worse in the future, Eswing can expect more purchases from me. Highly recommended.

Let me start by saying that I am not a contractor and I don't use my tools for a living. Having said that, I do all of my own home repair/renovation work and at one point or another I have built everything from furniture to room additions to a 24' by 40' pole barn. I have owned this hammer for a long time - at least 6-8 years, and although the metal has tarnished to a dark grey it is still in as good of shape as the day I bought it. The face has remained very flat and true and the handle grip is holding up just fine. I love the balance of this hammer and the weight is just right for jobs like framing where power is more important than finesse.

All in all this is what I would consider a useful and indestructible tool at a great price.

This hammer isn't as heavy as the 24 oz framing hammers or even the 22 oz hammers that are available
in your hardware/home improvement stores. Since the body and neck are one piece metal, the weight is
more evenly distributed than a wood handled hammer, where the weight is concentrated in the head itself
and puts more stress on your wrist and elbow. Estwing makes a superb hammer. Durable, precisely machined
and very strong. This 20 oz. hammer is more than adequate for the serious DIYer or even the professional
who wants to save his or her joints in the process.

I bought this hammer on October 2011, and it is still looks brand new. I'm not a contractor, so I just have used it, for the regular household repairs. For me, it is a solid hammer that will last forever, and even that I paid some extra bucks, I think that in the long run, I will have my money back for the quality and durability of this hammer.
