This hammer is solid - nothing like the one-and-done, low-quality tools so many people have come to expect. Made from a one-piece tool steel forging with a stacked leather handle and riveted-on grip cap, it's as durable as a hammer is going to get. Plus, the leather handle gives it a certain level of throwback classiness. I have little doubt this hammer will outlast me unless I leave it on an outcrop somewhere.
** i got my replacement:
the grinding on the head of this hammer is not uniform. for some reason the hammer face isnt exactly flat. the contours on the handle I had previously admired is not on this hammer. and the handle in general seems to have been beat up alittle (perhaps in shipping) there is nothing about my issues that will keep me from using this tool. it is after all going to be used to smack rocks. the differences in the grinding and finishing of the two hammers is pretty suprising. so this leaves you with a choice. do you hunt down a retail store and find the PERFECT hammer, or do you order on amazon and either keep sending it back until they send the right hammer or settle for one that is just good enough. this rock hammer works for what it is. some other tools I'll be a bit more picky.
I am a engineer near times square in Manhattan I bought this tool to inspect the quality of rock for the foundation of buildings. this tool was perfectly built for this. the pick end was shaped perfectly to get into the seams of the schist. I was suprised at the size of the rock I was able to cleave out using the leverage of the pick. the hammer head took a few good hits and didnt show any sign of damage. the coatings (print and paint) wore down very quickly but very little scratches appeared on the surface of the metal
the handle is shaped in a way that I would choke up on it to tap the hammer to the rock face.(to listen) or I can use physics to my advantage and hold down at the bottom of the handle and give a arcing swing and put some real force into the strike.
I also used the pick end of break up and help clear out some clays and it had no problem doing so
attached photos are of handle profile, hammer in field and problems from loose rivets I have also included my replacement's head mis-shape.
** LATEST UPDATE**
I accidentially dropped the hammer from hip height and the rivet plate holding the leather rings together is loose on this one now. I think my time with Estwing hammers has come to a end. the leather handle series are not built to be used. only produced to be wall hangers and toys for people to show off to convince other people how rugged you are. I will probably shim and epoxy this pos back together and abuse until its untimely demise.. at which time I will buy another manufacturer. any other manufacturer its just crazy a tool designed to hit rocks, cannot withstand a slight bit of abuse
The hammer does cost a little more, but provides much more value than the light weight Chinese made hammers with the tube handle that always seems to bend and where the rubber handle causes blisters and will come loose when using it. So the value is definitely there.
I expect this to last as long to pass it down to my son and I am sure he will get many years of use as well .
