From the Manufacturer
The Bostitch One Piece Steel smooth face hammer features an oversized striking face which is 75 Percent larger when compared to traditional hammers (patent-pending). This oversize face improves striking accuracy. Its patented torsion control stabilizers reduce arm twisting fatigue; especially when compared to standard one-piece hammers. Moreover, its patented AntiVibe technology works to minimize vibration by acting as a tuning fork that dispels vibration more readily as the hammer strikes the work. This hammer is precision balanced to improve performance and maximize comfort. It is an ideal hammer for all applications including general contracting, framing, roofing, household repair and flooring. The new Bostitch One Piece Steel hammer features a dual tempered head rim and claw to help reduce steel chipping and cracking for added durability. Furthermore, it has a sharper claw for improved ripping capability as well as a slip-resistant textured handle for a more secure grip. A magnetic nail starter helps extend the user's reach while facilitating one-handed nailing capability.

* Lighter and shorter to store and carry than most framing hammers
* Nail holder has very good shape and very strong magnet.
* Unlike some steel hammers, doesn't have headache making "ring". I hit it with shaft of a screwdriver to simulate usage
* Head is very rounded to make up for very large diameter, unlike most hammers where the head is flat except for rounded edges. Heading toward being a ball pein hammer
* Would have had to sand down the sharp serrations on the grip. Very uncomfortable without gloves
Note that I'm not a professional carpenter so YMMV
strike surface (as in fewer missed and mis-hits). Not necessarily so.
Just like a golf club, what really matters is how big the "sweet spot" is.
That's the area where you can be relatively certain if you hit the nail,
it will be driven straight into the wood.
This hammer ends up causing more "mis-hits." Your eye sees a big head
and you start banging away, often the first hits are "mis-hits" causing
the nail to fly or be driven in at an angle.
If you can't find a hammer with a "bigger sweet spot" claim, then buy
a good hammer with good balance and feel -- with a normal head.
You will end up with better hits than you are going to get with this one,
unless you are willing to adapt to it....which defeats the purpose of getting
a "bigger head" on your hammer.
The curved face of the striking surface makes sure there is absolutely zero chance of a head-on hit. I tried 16 penny nails (they are finishing nails with a small head) into trim and molding pieces and ended up getting so mad I resorted to my trusty three-pound sledge to finish the job.
Seriously, I urge no one to purchase this "hammer." There are many other designs that cost the same amount of money (Estwing, for example) with a much higher quality than this. I also doubt that whomever engineered this piece even tried to use it to hammer a nail, because if they did, they would have immediately taken it back to the drawing board.
The head is very rounded and it just doesn't work.
Looks cool. Looks similar to and Estwing. Does not compare to Estwing.
