Feels great!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] If you’ve ever hit an anvil with a hammer before you know it will vibrate your arm off! Not this thing! It feel perfect in the hand and remarkably low vibration! The rubber handle is high quality and not to soft or too hard. It’s not going to fall apart after a few uses. Solid and nice 2lbs of weight make it easy to shape metal without as much effort but just light enough to use without too much fatigue. And call me vain, but I love the finish they put on this!

A great hammer for more than Blacksmithing
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This hammer has a very slight convex face on the larger side, so although it may not be the best tool for precise or delicate tapping, it can still do its job for the majority of other tasks. The antivibe function does work and I definitely feel less fatigued than using a wooden handle. I think the extra cushioning does require a little getting used to but I do not miss the feeling of tingly hands after using this for long periods of time. I was actually pretty surprised by how thin the neck is. I guess it's one of the compromises of having a 2lb hammer with most of the weight concentrated on the head. There's also a cool embossed antivbe print on this portion. It doesn't look worrisome to me, but it did surprise me. The face of this hammer does seem to be tempered pretty well. I would still keep its usage for unhardened metals, but I did test it on other materials such as brick and rocks. It is still looking unscathed so far. Overall, it's another great hammer that is a worthy addition to any toolbox.

Great for any job!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Whether I need to drive stakes in the ground on a construction site, release a ball joint on a truck in the shop, or pound sheet metal into shape, this hammer does it all. 2lbs is a great weight for most projects I do and the anti-vibe handle is a hand saver, prevents your hand from going numb after a solid strike on something solid. Would definitely recommend for any trade or job site.

Excellent Versitile Tool
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I got this hammer to use for some fabricating. However, I have already found a couple of other uses for it. I immediately used it installing Road signs. I also used it to drive lead anchors into asphalt for deliniators. I lastly used to help with doing a bend heating and bending metal for a repair. I can't say enough about this hammer. Life is good. A tool in my box from now on

I was very disappointed with the final finish of the face of this hammer. It looks like it was done manually without much attention paid to the angle of the edges of the face to the sides of the hammer The angles are not even at all.

This can bust up things.
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] With all the below zero and weather I had a chance to use this to bust up some thick ice. Didn't take a ton of pressure for it to go through the thick ice that had formed from the melting snow before the heavy freeze came in. I'm not a blacksmith. But this can help demolition projects around the house.

Stanley makes a great quality hammer yet the design of this is not a good one for blacksmith work...
Stanley makes a great quality hammer yet the design of this is not a good one for blacksmith work. The face is way too small. My 5 year old even noted how small the face was.! Haha. I'll be returning this to the store. I bought it online. Had I known the face was so small I'd have not bought it. Poor design for blacksmith work. It would be like using a regular carpenter hammer for iron work.

love this hammer
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am so so happy with this blacksmith hammer so far! First of all, this hammer is made VERY well! It is pretty heavy which I love because I know it's made well and it's durable! I can tell it's made with high quality materials too, because of how well it works. It's made from steel, so you know it's going to last! The grip is really easy to hold as well, and it fits perfectly in my hand which I really like. The main thing I really love about this hammer, is how well it works. It takes no effort to straighten out metal. I also LOVE that it minimizes vibration and shock too. It makes it a lot easier to use! It is just an all around awesome blacksmith hammer. All in all, this is an amazing hammer and I HIGHLY recommend it! If you work a lot with metal, you will need this. Give it a shot, you will be happy you did!

Great handling sledge.
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I needed a new sledgehammer for home and automotive uses. This Fatmax hammer is great. Dont let the light weight fool you, the grip is amazing and the anti-vibe handle is very comfortable. There are many uses for this hammer. I used it for removing an old wall in the house, and replacing ball joints on my truck. You can't go wrong with this hammer, so comfortable, powerful and light weight.
