The 8 oz. Ball Peen Hammer has a bonded and molded Shock Reduction Grip that reduces shock up to 70% and will not come off. Estwing hammers are the only hammers that can make this claim. The head and handle are forged in 1-piece and have an attractive blue UV coating, with a fully polished face and peen. This tool has unsurpassed balance and temper. Ball peen hammers of the proper size are designed for striking chisels and punches and for riveting, shaping and straightening unhardened metal. Made in USA. Protect your eyes from flying particles and dust. Always wear safety goggles. Bystanders shall also wear safety goggles.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Up to Snuff The hammer being probably the first made-by-man tool, is kind of silly to get too analytical about but that being said, the Estwing models with the one piece shank are my first choice when grabbing a new hammer. The only reason you'd ever need to replace one of these is if you're is lost or stolen. I have the 8 oz and the 24 oz ball-peen as well as several other Estwing models with the same one-piece shank. That we use to work on tractors, offroad vehicles, and other farm and construction equipment; and while machining, welding, and demolishing. The steel is properly forged and brushes up nice-as-new if they happen to be neglected for a while. I once lost an Estwing and found it a couple years later in a field where I lost it. I brushed it up and it was good-to-go. My first Estwing belonged to my Grandpa, and I received it when my grandma moved off their farm. I'm still using it. The claw hammer is easily 40 years old and the old grip has darkened a little. The polyurethane (I think thats what they are made of) grips are extremely durable and bonded well to the handle. The polyurethane gripped Estwings are far superior to the leather gripped Estwings as they are grippier, and better balanced. Although the leather grips look cool, they are slick, and heavy in the grip. The poly grips seem to be oil and chemical resistant (at least for the chemicals mine have been kicked around in). If I had to frame a whole house without the use of the nailgun, I'd likely choose something something of more modern materials, with a bit more shock absorption, knowing that it wouldn't last as long as the steel shank.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A good hammer for my wife to hang pictures. Good hammer for light work in the house. Its light weight works well with women and children. September 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It does what it's supposed to do Good quality, decent hammer, it does what it's supposed to do, although I use it for everything BUT metal work. I use it instead of a lightweight claw hammer for putting up pictures and such, and for hitting a nail set (I'm cautious about hitting any temepred steel with a normal nail hammer). Only bad thing is that the head is too small to stay in the metal loop of a tool belt's hammer keeper. April 15, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It's a hammer... This is a hammer, light wight, perfect for the job. July 1, 2014
