After overworking my right arm constructing an addition,(I'm an air cond. contractor, not a framer) for six months I could hardly grip with my right hand. The tendon damage was considerable. Every time I tried to hammer the injury would flare up. A local building supplier said try this hammer. Amazingly it works... and works damn well. No more pain, the injury has healed but using any other hammmer other than the antivibe will cause pain after an hour's work. The shock that went thru the arm to the elbo is gone. Worth twice the money.

First, this is a very comfortable hammer (grip, balance, and easy on the elbow). The comfort comes at the expensive of keeping the vibration in the hammer.

After every strike, the hammer continues to ring for a few seconds. I thought I had a 5 star hammer until I helped a friend build a shed. My elbow felt great, but the continuous ringing for 2 days was enough to drive me insane! Even my friend was affected by the ringing while working several feet away.

He had the 20-ounce Antivibe and it does not experience any ringing. I headed to Lowes to buy a new hammer and tested these two models in the store. I sampled several of the Antivie hammers on the shelf and the 16oz/20oz ringing/not ringing held true.

If you can handle the extra weight, the 20oz Antivibe is a great hammer. It dampens the vibrations in a split-second. If you need a 16oz, I'd continue to look elsewhere if you need to drive more than a dozen nails per project.

I buy my hammers 2 at a time, one for the shop and one for me to lose on the jobsites. I shop carefully for all of my tools and a hammer is a major player, useful every day. When you look at this hammer,you will notice that the handle has a definite curve.It also has an enlarged end. This is very important,it allows you to grip this hammer (at any point on the handle)with much less effort than a straight handle(common on wooden handles). Also, the soft feeling rubber that covers the handle,makes it even easier to grip. These features reduce fatigue and the potential for stress and strain related injury. 16oz. hammers are a good choice for light to medium framing jobs and trim work. While this or any hammer works well for demolition, I prefer my 28oz Stanley.The downside of that big so and so is,,When you and I strike ourselves;however unintentially,that 28 does a lot more damage. Straight claws are much more suited for demolition. You can swing full throttle with a stright claw and sink the claws into just about anything used in construction, RESTRAIN yourself from wacking your help. If you watch CSI then you already know that you might not get away with it.

I bought both the curved and straight claw versions of this hammer in 2005 or so. I thought I had found some new favorite tools, but I was wrong. The ringing after a nail is struck, which I can only describe as an extended metallic ping that goes on for about 3 to 5 seconds, is irritating to say the least. The strike face of both hammers began to deform after very little use, leading me to believe that the metal wasn't any good. Worse than that, I'm not able to hit the head of a nail consistently with either hammer. The strike face seems to be at an odd angle (at least for me) making the hammer slide off the nail when hit. I've gotten much better results with hammers that cost half as much. Your mileage may vary.

"If I had a hammer, I'd hammer in the morning

I'd hammer in the evening - all over this land!

I'd hammer out danger, I'd hammer out a warning

I'd hammer out love between my brothers and my sisters

Ah-aaah

All over this land!"

As a hint to my family that I wanted a new hammer for Christmas, I repeatedly sang Trini Lopez's "If I Had A Hammer" song hundreds of times in the weeks prior to Christmas.

Great news - it worked! My family bought me this awesome Stanley Hammer. I've never been happier with a hammer! It hammers stuff real good. I've banged up my thumb a couple of times, but that's not the hammer's fault. I just probably shouldn't be hammerin stuff after I drink too much.

Anyway...thanks to Stanley for making such a great hammer, thanks to my family for buying it for me, and thanks to Trini Lopez for singing the song that made it all possible!

Gotta go now and use my hammer some more. As a great MC once said, "It's hammer time!"

This really is a great hammer, and far better than I needed. A welcome surprise. The antivibe is excellent for me since I have some minor nerve problems in my right arm from years on the computer. It's comfortable to grip and I'm just pleased with it.

The hammer works great if you do light work but if you are going to pound nail after nail, find a different hammer. The steel does not continue all the way down to the nub on the rubber handle where you get the most leverage when you are pounding a nail in. This causes the rubber handle at the nub to flex tweaking your bottom two fingers out of alignment with the rest of your hand when you are swinging. This hammer is one you get for a quick fix around the house, not for one that goes into a tool box for a carpenter.
