my dad had a 16oz. leather hammer when I was just a little kid. All the guys on the crew made fun of the little hammer, because it would ring every time it hit a nail, but that hammer outlasted any other hammer that I ever saw. my dad had that hammer over 28 years and it built alot of houses. It is strong enough to frame with, yet light and well balanced for trimming with. The smooth leather handle won't blister your hand. Now I have my own construction co. and I have over a dozen estwing hammers all different styles, from brick to drywall, to millfaced framers. I have hung many hundereds of thousands of sq. ft. of drywall, built houses, and quite a few log cabins compleete with this hammer as my main trim hammer, but my dad never used any other hammer and works with me now and won't use any other hammer. his old sining hammer has worn down, but it still gets the job done every day, year after year. It's never gave a splinter in a finger, never cracked or broken a handle in over 28 years. I would say the hammer has nothing to prove, it's been there and done it all for our family businesses. Deffinately has been a great hammer. (and it carries a good toon)!

in 1972, my father and my uncle started a construction co. and began building houses in our area, while my father also operated our dairy farm. Their choice hammer was a 16 oz. straight claw, leather handled, steele shank estwing. The other guys on the crew all had bigger heavier wood handled hammers. The guys on the framing crew all made comments about the brothers little 16 oz. singing hammers, (the steele shank made a ringing sound every time the hammer hit a nail), but none of them could drive a 16D nail as fast, or as straight as the little 16 oz. Through the years, my dad would bring me to the job sites so I could work with him, (he said that he hoped that something would rub off on me), sometimes he would let me try out his hammer. While I watched the crew build many houses over the years one thing became clear, even though the guys made fun of the singing hammers, the other hammers would chip, crack, or the handle would break off, but the two estwing hammers were the only hammers that came back to the job sites year after year after year. The nice reddish tan leather started to get darker and the claws wore down shorter, but the hammers rang on. My brothers and I used to take dads hammer without permission and build tree houses and other projects. The "old man" would let us know loud and clear what that hammer meant to him, and that he did not want that hammer lost or left out in the rain. The fact that he liked the hammer so much seemed to make us boys want to use it all the more, we wanted to be just like dad. The hammer got left out in the rain so manny times over the years by all four of us boys, that the speach about the hammer was quite common around our house.Read more ›

...after hauling around my 20-oz. Estwing, I bought this 16-oz. model as a spare. I was skeptical about this tool after previous reviewers complained of an annoying ringing sound, but I either cannot hear this or it just does not bother me. When I first picked it up, I appreciated the shock reduction grip. It is quite an improvement over Estwing models of just a few years ago.

My concerns about 16 ounces not being enough mass to drive large nails were alleviated the first time I used this hammer to demolish and re-frame parts of an exterior wall for window and door installation. I found it comfortable to swing and easy to aim given the decrease in mass. It is perfectly balanced.

The one-piece design inspires confidence that I won't see the head of this baby go flying by my head on the back swing. If my mind were to wander to thoughts of lunch, I know that a misplaced blow won't pulverize some wooden handle or worse, send slivers of fiberglass into my eye. All metal construction, sufficient mass, and quality craftsmanship combine in an exceptional all-purpose hammer.

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 have used the 16 0z rip hammer for about 16 years--the same hammer that is, and it is still going strong. An awesome tool.

I bought the 22 oz smooth face hammer when I knew I wanted something for heavier work that the 16 oz wasn't made for. I had read the reviews about the milled face wearing down, so I went with the smooth face so I could use it for trim work if need be.

I have used this for extensive demolition of a bathroom, bedrooms, kitchen and utility room, primarily to take out walls and tear up old, rotten flooring. I have become so used to it that I can use it to nail trim and not leave a mark on anything.

Many people that complain about not using this or heavier really needs to practice and get used to it before going to work with it. It is a great companion that will last a lifetime.

If you need a hammer that can do heavy demolition, yet can help rebuild, this is a great hammer. If you need a hammer for basic work around the house, I recommend the 16 oz hammer.
