Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tye A good replacement
12 years my walnut handled roofing hammer broke. This has a sturdy handle with great primary and alternate grip points and a head that gets a good bite on large and small nails.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by HandymanB My original framer
I own this hammer as well as an Estwing 22oz and a Hart 21oz. this hammer has a larger head than the other two so it allows me to swing with more confidence that I wont miss my nail. I also like that you can stand it upside down since the head has a flat portion on the top of it; this makes it very easy to grab the handle. I wish it had some sort of grip area on the handle. When it gets hot and you have been using it for a while, the handle can become a little slick and hard to grip.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Torchit Excellent choice in hammers
I recently purchased a husky 22 oz california framer. It proved to be a wise decision. Its a mean machine! I frame buildings alot, and its very effective. If you get the swing down to a science, you can make the hammer do most of the work. Its big and kind of heavy, but well balanced. And the best part is: lifetime warranty!!! I abuse it and it has'nt failed me yet...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BIGKIELBASSA Whacks 16 penny nails with ease !
Very large but it feels great when you whack 16 penny nails with ease. It swings well as do most California framers. I've got a lot of hammers but I always seem to end uo liking my California framers the best for heavy duty whacking. Not too good for smaller nails where a 16 ounce hammer would be a lot better. This is just for framing or beating apart old rotted steps . My other California framer mysteriously got leggs and walked away all by its self. Go figure. So that's why I bought this one. California framers are a personal choice. You have to decide which hammer you like. I love this hammer.

This isn't nearly as good as some of the other hammers I've had. Its better! At sucking The nails out of the wood after I messed it up. The hammer head had been soft. ening my heart since the moment I picked it up. The wood chipped. away at my barriers until I was ready to love again. All in all 10/10 best hammer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by improvementdude Husky Framer
This hammer is not as good as the Estwing Hickory framer........it's better!!! The balance, head shape, accuracy, price, quality and looks......make this my "go to" framer in the bag. As a professional.....I am VERY fussy about my tools......and the Husky Framer has a permanent place in the bag. I also had the Estwing.....and actually gave it away to a helper. I wish I would have purchased the Husky first.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wcsd Great hammer
Great hammer for framing, excellent for demolition as well. It's heavy enough to pound larger fasteners and lumber into place, but light enough to use continuously without wearing you out completely. I like mine so much I use it for everything including masonry, landscaping, and of course carpentry and demo. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this hammer, not even the price!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chase Incredible Framing Hammer!
This hammer is easily the best framing hammer on the market. I've had my first one for about 4 years now and it is still as strong as ever. I've since convinced several others that no other hammer matches its quality. I'll never own another type of hammer.
