Got this for my son, it was the only colored 12 oz hammer I could find. I wanted him to have something he knew was his. He is only 8, so the light weight of this is better for him than a heavier hammer.

Although this is not the hammer you'd want to built a redwood deck or other large-scale carpentry projects it's the perfect size for most other household use. Like just about everything else nowadays, it's made in china.

Pros: It seems to be very well constructed and I suspect it will last for a long time. It's well balanced. The blades of the claw have been honed to a fine edge. This is very helpful if you want to pull a nail that has been almost driven in. I have too many hammers where the edge is too thick or rounded. Because this is all metal, you don't have to worry about the head separating from the handle, as often happens with wooden handled hammers over time.

Cons: I have to nitpick to find some "cons," but here they are. On the one I received, the striking surface was very slightly rounded, in a convex shape, rather than being perfectly flat. This does not seem to affect how this hammer worked. Again, it's a very slight imperfection. In theory you'd want a flat surface. I have large hands and the grip on this is thinner than I'd prefer. However I have that problem with many hand tools. I suspect that the size is fine for people with medium to small hands. I also noticed that the hammer I received is not the same as the one pictured. The handle in the picture starts small, widens, thins then widens again. Mine starts thinner, then gradually becomes wider. The grip in the picture also seem to be wider.

A hammer is a hammer, right? Unless you are a...KR Tools 48000 Xtreme 12-Ounce Claw Hammer with Purple Rubber Grip. Here's what you get

- Obviously, a bright purple grip. I wear size M/L gloves, and this grip feels too small for me. However, my partner was delighted with its size, in that larger hammers feel too big in her hands. Add to this the bulk of a pair of leather gloves, and a regular hammer grip really gets big. So this is especially nice for a person with M/S or smaller hands. The grip was a harder "plasticky" grip than I like, so there was less friction than I prefer to have on my hammers.

- It's a 12 ounce claw hammer. I like a 16+ ounce (actually, a framing hammer). Pound a lot of nails into a deck or a newly constructed wall and you'll appreciate the difference. However, this lighter touch is sometimes just what is needed for light projects.

- The craftsmanship of the head is okay, and certainly better than some hammers. There is a definite human touch to finishing the shaping and polishing, and my hammer was nicely done. It didn't come lathered in oil like many inexpensive tools, and I appreciated that.

Fundamentally, you shouldn't be disappointed with this hammer unless you have long fingers and want a more powerful force hitting that nail, or a longer handle for prying out a nail. That purple handle certainly does catch your eye!

Despite the manufacturer's description of this hammer as an "X-treme" tool, it's a general light duty claw hammer. This hammer has a 12 ounce head which is fine for general household use, such as hammering picture hooks, wire staples, small finishing nails, etc. It's not a framing hammer (most of those have 16 ounce heads) and you'll be very frustrated if you attempt to use it as such. It just doesn't have the heft necessary for framing work nor the proper length nor grip on the handle for easy nail extraction. But as a hammer you can keep in "that" kitchen drawer with all the other stuff, or in the tool box you keep handy for small home projects, it's quite adequate.

The hammer appears to be reasonably well constructed. The head is firmly attached to the handle. Because the handle is a bit narrow, I was concerned that the head might easily detach. I drove several large (oversized for this hammer) nails into a 2x4 with a larger hammer and I was not able to cause a failure in this light duty hammer while removing them. The finish work on the head is actually quite good; it's symmetrical and nicely polished. The rubber grip has very little contour, though, and is not as comfortable to hold as a more contoured handle.

Overall, for its intended purpose as a light duty claw hammer, this one makes the grade.

Well, what can you say about a hammer? Obviously it works...it hammers things in. ;-) But I do own several hammers, and thus can compare them pretty well at this point.

Here's my pros and cons for this hammer:

PROS:
- Fully hardened and tempered
- Nice sharp "claw" that can grab even the smallest of nail heads
- Polished finish makes it good for "clean" jobs around the house that you don't want to leave scuff marks on (when removing a nail, etc.)
- Lightweight -- I didn't realize how light a 12 oz hammer is!
This is NOT an all-purpose hammer for anything resembling construction. This is what I would call an "apartment hammer" -- perfect for hanging pictures, nailing small amounts of trim, etc. It is WAY too lightweight for anything major. However, this can be nice for many people, especially if you don't have a lot of arm strength or have difficulty holding heavy tools, especially above the shoulder level (like I do). This is by far the lightest hammer I have ever owned, but it actually feels more solidly built that bulkier ones I have.

CONS:
- The "heavy grade rubber grip" is NOT very rubbery at ALL. It feels more like a cross between plastic and rubber (but closer to plastic). I have other rubberized KR Tools, and they are very rubbery and grippy. This one is not. The grip is only marginally better than a regular wooden-handled hammer. It can easily slip out of your hand.
- The hammer does not feel well "balanced" to me. There does not seem to be a logical ergonomic grip anywhere, so your hand doesn't have an obviously place to hold it securely. This is hard to describe, but you know am odd grip when you feel it.
- Not for hardened nails. The warning label on the hammer warns that the hammer itself can chip (!
