Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by trimcat56 sad attempt at duplicating stillto technolgy
this hammer is a bit a of joke.. its not actually made by dewalt its merely rebranded stanley.
ive had one of these break and have seen several others break on a jobsite , either the full head snaps off the handle where the welds are or the shaft of the handle bends. they really need take this thing back to the drawing board..
they are trying to replicate what Stiletto has done with their Titanium hammers which are 1/2 the weight of steel and have 10x less shock than a steel hammer.. spend the extra $30 and buy a wood handle stilleto or $250 and buy a Stiletto tibone you wont be disapointed

Don't let the title fool you, the hammer is great but i bought it at full retial price when it came out and then the very next month Dewalt decided to through in the 10" ripping bar for free! Kinda rude on dewalts part. I know I am only 1 amoung thousands of other contractors tha bought this hammer before dewalt thought they should give away the ripping bar with it! Anyhow Home Depot was good about it and exchanged the hammer for me free of charge!

i used my 15oz dewalt hammer for the first time today at heavy steel form work, i find it excellent on my arm and shoulder, really light weight, but the head is showing a lot of wear after just one day, and i am not too sure about applying pressure on the shaft sideways while drawing nails or prying on steel wedges, aside from that excellt hammer for at framing, i may check out the 14oz dewalt hammer in the store to see if it looks more durable.

I bought this hammer after reading some good reviews for it online. Although it does drive nails in fairly well, it has harsh vibration compared even to my Fat Max framing hammer that is half the price. I used it for 5 minutes and returned to my old hammer, before returning this hammer to the store.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by smitty6 hits better than my 25 oz Estwing.
I have only had this hammer for a couple of days, but so far it has been an awsome hammer. It hits better than my 25 oz Estwing surestrike california framer, and it is way lighter!

I was a bit hesitant to buy this hammer, but decided to give it a try. After 6 months I am very happy with my decision and overall I am pleased - the weight of this hammer is very lightweight yet it hits pretty hard! I actually got talking to a DeWalt rep in the store who convinced me to buy the hammer. He said it's got the weight of titanium but the strength of steel, and it actually hits like a heavy 28oz framing hammer. I don't know if that's all true, but it really feels great when I use it. He also told me the hammer is made for timber framing and finishing and not for concrete...So that is maybe why some of the reviews are poor when guys tried to use the hammer for concrete applications.
Overall - great hammer! I would recommend it to anyone!

I picked one of these up a few weeks ago after reading some reviews on line. I have been thinking about it for a while but was hesitant to spend $60 on a hammer. All I can say is that I wish I had this hammer 15 years ago. Probably wouldn't have needed shoulder surgury (twice). My only complaint is the yellow grip. It gets dirty really fast. Why in the world they didn't make it black is beyond me.
