A hammer that will hold the nail for you – excellent
Sometimes we need another hand, and this hammer will hold the nail as you drive it. A magnet in the head of the hammer holds the nail steady, and as long as the head of the nail is wide enough, you can drive that nail with one hand. Don’t try this with finishing nails or similarly sized nails that have little heads, because they will pop out of the nail holder. Use a good sized nail and take aim carefully. After you drive the nail, wiggle the head of the hammer to free the nail, and then keep hitting that nail. When working with two hands, and the other hand is full, or when working with one hand, this is the right tool for the job.

Great hammer
I mean for a tool that has had the same general purpose for thousands of years at this point you're really just refining the little things. This hammer is no different in that the little subtle things are nice. The grip feels great in the hand. The weight is significant but really helps drive nails versus a 16oz that's in most home tool boxes. I did think the nail holder was going to be a bit gimmicky but with a 3" nail loaded in I could easily start a nail well out of reach where I'd normally need a ladder. It works surprisingly well, even my kids could do it. Overall, a great addition to the toolbox.

very heavy duty and functional hammer
This is a 20 ounce hammer which is about as heavy as I want to go. It has a very good heft to it and drives a nail without a problem. The straight claw makes it easy to remove nails and the weight also helps with the force needed to safely removes nails. The hammer has a nice grip that doesn't seem to slip. This hammer also looks stylish if that matters. :) I am looking forward to owning and using this hammer for many years to come.

"If I had a Hammer"
This Crescent is very nice and well made. It has a nail holder on the head so, as a woman, I won't hit my fingers when hammering. The shank of the hammer is made so it can easily be used to nail things under water. The grip itself has a molded end to keep your hand from slipping. I wasn't aware of the VibeGuard technology but my husband likes that it has less vibration when using it.

Solid Hammer
Every time I need to use a hammer I can’t seem to find one so I picked up another to add to the collection. No doubt this is the best of the bunch. The hammer design and look is clean and functional. I liked the idea of the forged steel head with VibeGuard technology. Time will tell if the vibration reduction works. The hammer has a nice weight to it but feels very balanced.

This hammer rocks.
This is my first new hammer in a while and I love it. It has a larger striking surface, a softer grip and is advertised and vibration reduction. It absolutely sings when when striking. There is a magnetic nail holder and channel for starting nails. This is the 20 ounce hammer. The nail puller is straight which should give you more leverage. The rubber handle is really comfortable.

It works...
Surprisingly, I tend to lose hammers fairly often (as well as screwdrivers, and no, I don't use toolbelts) because I put them down momentarily and walk away and forget them. So I'm buying hammers on a fairly regular basis. I look at the hammer's weight and balance and the claw. The crescent hammer is very comfortable to hold and the claw is angled enough for me to grab and pry. I'm taking one star off because something doesn't feel balanced when I hold it and the nail holder isn't usable for nails shorter than 1.5". Otherwise, it's perfectly fine.

Great GP Everyday Hammer
Cresent…. 16 oz. Fiberglass General Purpose Hammer, this hammer is the perfect size and weight for any project you have around the house, I like the magnetic nail starter,and I like the textured fawn’s foot grip design, this hammer is made of steel and the handle is made of fiberglass it is durable and well-constructed and is precision balanced which helps with weight distrabution, I especially like the straight up design of the claw rather than curved towards the back of the hammer, and the hole in the handle I love so I can hang it up, Overall a great hammer.

Well made straight claw hammer
This hammer comes with a lifetime gaurantee. Because of it's design and materials you won't have to worry about the head seperating from the shaft or the shaft breaking as can occur with wood handled hammers. The shaft is a bit longer than I'm used to and the shaft has very little "shape"/curves where you are likely to place your hand. I personally prefer handles with more shape like the wooden ones in the photos. You may have different preferences. If you have th chance, try out different styles and designs and pick the one that feels best to you.

A sturdy, practical and ergonomic hammer
This is a sturdy and ergonomic hammer. The handle is long at 14” overall, giving one a chance to hold it at its end to whack a spike, or to “choke up” as we did on a baseball bat, and hit a nail with moderate force and perhaps more accuracy. It’s billed as having “Vibe Guard — 70% less vibration” and I found that there was no vibration driving a nail. The handle is more oval than that of my wood and fiberglass handles, and it offers a more comfortable and secure grip with its grainy rubber cover. There’s a hole at the end of the handle, handy for hanging the hammer on a pegboard. It’s billed as having a “15% larger sweet spot.” The claws each have five indentations on the outside. The head has a Nail Starter — a slot at the top of the head 9/64” wide with a 9/32” circle in the slot with a magnet in it to hold your nail, the head of which goes against a cleft at the top of the shank, a handy feature, though I prefer to hold a nail with my left hand with its point where I want to send it, while I tap it with the hammer. The shank of the hammer has a Red insert, which may have something to do with A) vibration, or B) making the hammer visible in a drawer or on the garage floor — I think the rubber handle deals with the vibration. This is a sturdy, practical and ergonomic hammer.
