I own one of these and it has built and destroyed many bridges in the Chicago area. Estwing steel framers are THE hammer. They're cheap, virtually indestructible (I've owned several and the only reason I've ever had to buy a new one is when I lose the old one or the one time some oblivious operator set his bucket down on my hammer that was resting on a barrier wall and smooshed the claws together).

It's like a sledge in framing hammer form. The claws are long and sharp. It's balance is dead on. And all the pros use it. I got into a work truck the other day, set my hammer down on the seat and realized I sat it down on top of 3 other steel estwings; Mine, my foreman's and 2 of my other foreman's (A 22oz for driving nail and a 28 oz for demo work). I've seen hundreds of these on job sites being used for everything you can imagine and they hold up like nothing else. I've only seen 2 Stanley antivibe steel framers and of those two, the head broke off on one as a dude was using it to chip some concrete and the hammer was only a couple of weeks old. For shame. I've never seen that happen with an estwing.

I love this hammer if I could give it 10 stars I would. I install windows for a living and use a hammer a lot. I was getting sick of my stanley fiberglass standard 16oz curved claw hammer, i call it pinger. The stanley pings really loudly and it is very anoying. Anyway the Estwing hits a lot harder and has better comfort. Even though the Stanley has a "form fitting handle" that gives me a blisted after ten minutes. Estwing is the way to go. I may suggest that you get the 22oz because it is the same size, cheaper and unless you frame for a living you wont need the little extra power the 28 oz has,. Also the 28oz hurts your forarm a l;ittle quicker than the 22oz.

Never thought I needed a 28-ounce hammer until I used this one. The additional weight seems unwieldy at first, but it does a number on even the biggest nails. And the waffled face allows you to drive the nail straight regardless of how poorly you strike. I know, I've tried! :)

I own a couple of the smaller Eastwig hammers and they're excellent. One of them I found out in the woods. Must have been laying there for many years. It was completely covered with rust. I cleaned it and it performs like a champ. This 28-ounce version is every bit as sturdy as the others. You won't be disappointed.

This is my third Estwing. They make the best heavy framing hammer, but the waffles do eventually wear out. They do on $100 hammer, too. Still have the old ones, but wanted a new one for this season. If you don't do a lot of framing, you might want to go with a lighter version. The 28 oz. head gets heavy on a long day. By the third day you don't even notice it.

I've used this hammer for years, to do everything from building a new addition on my house to demo-ing a bunch of old plaster.

Plus, it's the hammer used to bludgeon someone to death by the Trinity Killer in Season Three of 'Dexter' (available from Amazon on DVD!), so that's a third use to which it can be put. Good to know!

There is nothing quite like the feel of an Estwing hammer in my hands. It is the only hammer I have used since first buying one years ago as a general contractor. I'm retired now, have been for three years, but still find a need for a good hammer. Two weeks ago mine went missing after a little basement remodeling project with a friend. He swears he didn't take it home with him. So I looked for one at several local hardware stores...nada...so turned to Amazon, and behold...THE HAMMER...
