But, for real, what I thought would be too much weight, turned out to be just the kind of heft and balanced mass to break and split things with ease and little effort. The extended handle has the hammer doing all the work with less stress on the wrist and arm.
I use it for so many things--splitting wood, chipping stone, breaking rock, digging holes and prying stones from the hardest of ground, not to mention tapping in my tent stakes and several other tasks. My camping buddies poked fun at me at first; "Whaddya gonna do with that thing?" TURNS OUT, EVERYTHING! I used it all weekend for innumerable tasks. They were impressed by the end of the trip and were eager to get one of their own.
And the holder that came with it? Well, it was bigger than I though it would be, but not bigger than it needs to be. It's also stronger than I thought it would be. Utterly perfect for the hammer and fits on my belt just fine; I tend to rotate it on my belt toward the back of my hip. It stays put.
I will not go on another hike or adventure or camping trip without this thing on my belt. I am so glad I bought it as a birthday gift to myself. Who was gonna by me a pick hammer anyway, right?
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.
