5.0 out of 5 stars I'd take Titanium over Steel any day., October 22, 2005
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Stiletto Tools, Inc. TI14MC Titan 14-OunceTitanium Framing Hammer With Curved Handle (Tools & Home Improvement)
As a former framer and now weekend carpenter, I have to say that I woulld never go back to a heavy Steel hammer. To address a few previous complaints, yes, I have broken handles. About three now I think. In Five years of use that is. And doing things I should't have. Like heavy demolition and Pulling Nails using the head as a lever. The Correct way to pull nails is with A) a Cat's Paw or B) by Bending the hammer handle sideways back and forth. If you use the head as your lever, you will beak any wooden hammer handle. I keep a spare handle in the truck just in case. As for the weight, Well, I'll remind you that F=MA (Remember that Physiscs class you never paid attention in?). Therefore it's the carpenter that drives the nail, not the hammer. What the Titanium does it put the little guy (Like me) at an advantage because I can work longer without fatigue. So if you are a Full-time Professional Framer and your arms are the size of tree trunks you might want to stick with your 26oz beast. As for me, I will keep on swinging my 14oz Stiletto as I build my nice new shop.

Everyone has questions about the titanium head, but the wood breaks off in the long run. I choose to stay in the heat with my 26 ounce, right? Yeah right! All day long with the Stiletto!! Driving those 16d's with 2 whacks, gets the job done especially with a cats paw on hand (and a cold beer in the other, right? ;)) Tap, wham! Tap, wham! Wish they made a Skilsaw with titanium, but without the wood handle if you catch my drift. Wanna create a new bargain down at the joist with tools like that! Good review!!
