Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HandymanB My favorite so far
I really enjoyed using this hammer. I bought it along with the estwing 22oz. hammer and this one is slightly more comfortable than the estwing. It also has a few features that i like such as the magnetic nail setter, the thumb indentation, the curved grip, side nail strike, as well as the side nail puller. This is the most comfortable and well balanced hammer I have used in a while.

I've had this hammer for about a year with a hefty amount of use, it's holding up well. As the framer previously stated, the handle grip will start to deteriorate, but at such a miniscule rate. Unless you seriously thrash and throw the hammer at things. It's a soft grip (very comfortable to hold and swing), and acts like soft soled rubber on shoes, which will deteriorate over time if you scuffle your feet around. Plainly put, it survives the abuse, the side pull is phenomenal, and multiple pulling/prying points are nice. I've dropped it, watched it slide off roofs in the rain, and even get run over by an oblivious bobcat driver.... guess what? Still using it without any problems.
If you're worried about the handle, I have the wooden Hart hammer, and it's just as great. I don't think that will stand up to a bobcat though

My rate of bending nails decreased almost to nothing. I know it a framing hammer but I used it the other day on small finishing nails and they didn't bend like before. Nice features.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 2install Durable, comfortable grip
Not a fan of the waffle head milled face, but I needed a hammer that I could also tear apart freight pallets to get to my product. I prefer wood handled hammers for striking, but they eventually break from the abuse beating and prying. I am fairly confident this hammer will hold up in the years to come.

Just buy one and you will not be disappointed! Great balance and hard hitting.

That's what my wife calls it, because she can use it effectively--unlike other hammers. While she does have some carpentry skills, she has trouble banging in nails...until I handed my favorite hammer to her. I think the weight is just right for most uses, the grip is sure, and the slightly angled milled face helps prevent bad hits. This is a superb hammer. Thank you, Mr. Hart. Oh, and if it bangs against your knee, keep it in your hand. It feels good there, sort of like a top grade drill or impact driver does.

By far this is the best hammer i have tried. it is easy on your hands when nailing for a long time. have tried heavier hammers,lighter shorter and longer hanmers and none can compare. many co-workers ask to borrow it when removing rows of nails when we wreck forms. and gets into certain angles were blue curved hammers cannot. my older brother even became an avid supporter after he tried it for a few days and had to purchase one. Strongly recommend, i work in highway building and when it comes time to form long stretches at a time i would not change it for any other.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DHO Poor design poor durability
I am a framer by trade. I got this hammer because I needed to replace my old one and on initial look it seemed sweet. It has some cool features. But this hammer lasted me less than 2 months. The grip started ripping after several weeks of use. Also the handle is poorly designed. If you wear a tool belt all day like I do you will know your hammer will bounce off your legs as you walk (this is fine with my estiwing hammer) but with the hart hammer it has a solid plastic end that hits the sides of your knees. Not comfortable! Actually painful at times. Yeah the hammer works as a hammer great. The hammer is more glitz and glam than actual enginuity. I would not reccomend this hammer for a pro. Thankfully Home Depot graciously warranties the hammer andet me trade it for the old faithful estiwing!
