I like the hammer, I have two claw hammers. This one and a wood hammer. This one seems a little top heavy to me. This may be do to a lighter fiberglass shaft, but I can easily compensate for it. The grip is comfortable and makes hammering without any workgloves effortless.
I have had this hammer about 5 years and I must say I am not disappointed in it at all. Would buy it again.
It's got good balance; light weight handle with a solid, heavy head make it real easy to get a good swing. The shaft is fiberglass but it has a rubber grip so even with sweaty hands it's not going anywhere. And I personally feel that fiberglass is a lot easier on the hands but a couple of old timers I work with still like wood better.
Seems pretty durable; We've been doing a lot of demo work with it for 2 weeks now and it's done everything from pounding nails to pounding pry-bars and chisels as well as knocking out old cripple studs. I've also been yanking old 3 inch nails out of concrete and brick.
It sounds silly but the color is actually kind of a plus as well, makes it a lot easier to spot when you leave it laying somewhere on the job site. We had a couple of dark red hammers as well and whenever one of us would need a hammer that's usually the first one we grabbed just because you couldn't miss it sitting there.
I think like I've given it a good run and a serious amount of abuse. I'm pretty happy with it.
I would choose a stanley fat max,Vaughn, or Estwing, but this is a very good homeowner hammer. Its handle is a little short so the leverage is not that high. However, that is personal preference.
While this is a great hammer, it might be too big for the average homeowner looking for a hammer for household jobs. Also, the flatter rip claw is made more for prying boards apart. Most homeowners will want the claw for pulling nails, and permanently marring up their walls; I would suggest the Stanley 16oz curve claw hammer.
And, it's a Stanley product.
Good tool! Good job Stanley!
I had a favorite old hammer for many, many years. One day, I finally managed to break it.
Here at Amazon I found what looked like a good replacement, this Stanley 20-Oz. rip claw hammer.
My main concert was that it might not be a "full-sized" hammer. I have one of those small hammers
ideal for light jobs like driving brad nails into the wall, for hanging pictures. But, there are times when you need
a hammer for the bigger jobs. Amazon lists this as almost 13 inches long, which seemed to me to be too small.
I measured the hammer and it's 13 1/8 inches long. Sure enough, it's a full-sized hammer, and quite hefty.
Maybe too hefty. The hammer feels a bit top-heavy and when swinging it about, I feel like the hammer is swinging me.
You know, wag the dog. If your an old-time carpenter who thinks nothing of driving an 8-penny nail into a beam with
one or two good hits, this is your hammer. On the other hand, I suspect that about 90% of all users would prefer a slightly
lighter hammer. Knowing what I know now, I believe the ideal general purpose hammer is the 16-Oz version. Go with the 16-Oz
model with the curved claw and you will have the hammer that you remember from Dad's tool belt.
You may wonder if this hammer is suited to pulling nails? Yes, it is. The claw has a V-shaped gap which is about 1 3/8" long.
The wide end is about 3/8" and it tapers to a narrow point of about 1/16".
I like the finish on this hammer. Like brushed stainless steel. A finely ground look, like a stainless steel kitchen sink. I like this hammer
and will certainly keep it, but I do think the 16-Oz would have been a better choice. So, I will summarize this way:
(1) This is a full-sized hammer.
(2) For most of you, the 16-Oz. is the better choice.
I hope this was helpful.
Of course, it's less than half the punch of a regular 16-oz hammer. But that's a plus for so many tasks. Also good for camping (tent stakes) when lighter/smaller is a plus.
Very nice rubber grip.
Actual dimensions are: 11.1" x 3.9" x 1.2"
Shop around. Mine is from Wal-Mart at under 6 buckss.

The hammer feels quite strong and firm in the hand due to the black rubber grip. The hammer head appears to be welded in place. Read morePublished 9 days ago by James Norvil
