I've been a Union carpenter for Disney World and have tried metal, fiberglass, and wood handled hammers. Wood always conforms to your hand as a natural extension. :-) I've bought this hammer 3 times because we couldn't take my tools to Israel and when I came back I bought a 16 oz and a 22oz Vaughn and love them both.
This one is a keeper.
This is the hammer I reach for first.
Vaughan has the best shaped handle on the market for a traditional hammer. American hickory used for the handle is known for its strength, lightweight and shock absorbing ability. Vaughan has properly polished the head unlike a lot of hammers out there in this price range which harks back to a time when making a quality wooden handled hammer mattered more than it obviously does today.
16oz is the perfect weight for use around the house. Rip-claw vs. typical curved claw lets you take stuff apart (demo time!).
Caveat: fits best in bare hands (can be slippery with gloves due to lacquered finish on handle).
It's perfectly balanced, feeling more like 10 or 12 oz., a joy to use all day. The long handle allows for real power when needed, or choke up a bit for more precise control and less force. There was no sign at all of any loosening of the head from the handle. I wish I were made as well!
I'm going to look for it a few more days before buying another, probably from Amazon as most hardware and tool stores only sell the Vaughn framing hammer.
UPDATE: My new hammer arrived from Amazon today. In reference to another review, paint thinner (mineral spirits) quickly and easily removed all vestiges of adhesive from my beautiful new hammer.
