    You'll love it. It's what was known in England as an 'Exeter pattern' hammer.

    I got a 12 oz Leather Handle Estwing Rip Hammer 35 years ago and it has served me well. Full forged head and handle.

    Sharp solves all manner of problems.

    This thing is cool, looking forward to trying it. I like the 14oz weight.

    +1 on the Warrington. That and a pattern hammer are my two most used in furniture making.

    I go to big box stores and fondle the toys, I mean tools, and make a selection.

    Congratulations, you must have gone thru a pile of 'em to get a great one ! I'd say you nailed it and handled it well. Now
    you are ready to claw your way to the top with a bang. Never use it for breaking up concrete...borrow
    a hammer for the rough stuff !!

    Passed by a friends junque store the other day and came home with these. (10 bucks he charged me)

    This one looks to be hand forged.

    You know, the worst ain't so bad when it finally happens.
    Not half as bad as you figure it'll be before it's happened.

    Recently Candy, my wife, saw something at Lee Valley she wanted so a few things were added to the order including this:

    Not long ago one of these was also purchased:

    The Estwing is still in transit. Found an Estwing rip hammer for $2 about a year ago. The nail puller blades set them apart.
