Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by agassizc Framer/Backframer - definitely recommend
I bought this hammer after having one of the Stanley Anti-vibe hammers, had it for about a year with no defects evident. It is far lighter so that is a bonus. I have zero complaints about it.
What I will say is, this hammer is no Stiletto, so comparing the two is an error. It does have side to side play which means common sense says don't use it to reef sideways (that's what pry bars or sledgehammer's are for). If you use the hammer in a manner that it was never designed for failure is inevitable. All the negative reviews seem to be by those who used the hammer in a way it wasn't designed for.

When your trying to lighten your load without compromising effectiveness this is a great option. My only drawback is I would like a smooth face.

Good size and weight in your hand. Everybody has different likes and tastes but for me this is the best hammer I have used for the price.

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

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!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by rich construction of hammer is to lite
i am a form carpenter/rod buster and this hammer is great while it last but my work has proven to be too much for this hammer i have destroyed three of these in two years they keep breaking were the shaft and handle meet plus the grip falls of first. the shaft and handle should have been one straight piece instead the steel running through the handle is thinner the shaft creating a weak point were the handle breaks off. and i also had one were the weld broke off under the head.
