When it comes to hammers, there is no better name in the business than Estwing. When you lift one up off the shelf the quality of the build and feel in the hand is the only thing you need to know you are handling a product that can last you a life time. I own three Estwing hammers of different weights and do not need any others. THe leather handle just makes this a better feeling hammer.

what was Estwing thinking making the handles so large on this style of hammer. I've got large hands an still it doesn't feel right when used

The handle is what sold me on this hammer. With someone with decently large hands it felt better to have a larger grip. This hammer is great for general use.

Hammer is one solid piece as described, which can be both a pro and a con.
The hammer does ring like a bell when it hits anything and everything.
When using it on metal it can sound more like an over-sized tuning fork and vibrate for a while, but the comfortable leather grip keeps your hand from feeling the vibrations.
The hammer has a practical weight and drive for any size person to swing. It is slimmer than a fiberglass or wood hammer so the head of the hammer swings a bit different than other hammers.
The price is fair considering the craftsmanship and materials of the hammer.
This is a buyer beware; it is a noisy yet efficient tool.

Made in the USA. There is something that you notice when using an Eastwing hammer, that ping sound when you hit the nail solidly. I was using an old, made in China hammer, and the head was constantly slipping off the side of the nail and smashing my thumb. I finally got fed up and went to Home Depot and bought myself an Eastwing. My thumb can't thank me enough! I've yet to have it slip and I've probably driven over 500 nails since. The handle is comfortable, it is well balanced and it just feels solid. This hammer also drives nails extremely quickly and does an excellent job of transferring the power from your swing through the nail body. Every garage in America deserves an Eastwing hammer!

If you appreciate your tools as much as you enjoy using them, this is the best hammer ever. Traditional styling and impeccable quality. I can't attest to day-to-day comfort or durability for the constructor, but for the home craftsman it's a tool to cherish. I will eventually have all of Estwing's leather-handled tools, just because they're so nice. (You will need some adhesive remover solvent to get the three labels off.) If you're considering a gift for someone, this is unbeatable.
