Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cyrrius Great hammer
This hammer is easy to swing, absorbs vibration pretty well, and you don't have to worry about taking off 1/2 your finger if you smack it because it's got a smooth face...never cared for the rough in hammers. Those things will take a chunk with it when you hit a finger. Estwing has always been a recommended brand. My grandpa swung one all his career, though he prefers the 28oz. It cost a little more so I went with the 22.

Comfortable grip, well balanced, only complaint is smooth face slips on nails.

This was the first real hammer ive ever owned besides a little 12oz curved claw my dad gave me when i was a little tike growing up working with him in the shop and i have loved every minute of owning it. About 2 months ago at HD my tool bag was stolen from my truck and this hammer was in it. I figured after reading reviews id pick up a stilleto and it wasnt worth the money. This hammer can easily out drive the stilleto and the only downside is it weighs more and i have to tighten the tool belt up some. But after i get my next paycheck ill be hanging that $200 stilleto up and purchasing another one of these trusty hammers.

My father bought me my first 'grown-up' hammer in 1995; I was 13, and helping build our post-military house. It was a 16-oz straight claw with the ubiquitous blue handle, and I have it today. I can still drive nails faster and more accurately with it than most handy-men I come across, though it requires a bit heavier swing. It is far and away my favorite hand tool, and a treasured memento that will (very soon) be passed on to my own son. Cannot recommend the Estwing brand enough.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bill Everyone knows estwings reputation, need I say more
I needed a good hammer that wasn't a waffle head, so I stuck with a! brand I know and trust. Now I have three estwings, my other 22 is a waffle head and I have a drywall hammer also
