13oz Estwing Ultralight Steel Hammer


It looks like Estwing is going to go head to head with DeWalt's light steel hammer with it's own 10oz steel hammer. Seems to be being tested in the U.K. for now. I'm going to buy one. It looks hella' fun.

Estwing Ultra Lite

Yeah.
The link I provided was from the U.K. though.
Out of stock there, but doesn't say discontinued.
I'd like to get my hands on one. 10oz is sick.
I think it'd be usable for anything up to 12D.

Re: 13oz Estwing Ultralight Steel Hammer


the claw looks like it would be a weak point where the steel is so thin

its about time estwing added a magnetic nail starter though.. ive been using hammers with it for 6 years now.. cant go without it

Estwing Ultra Lite

Estwings feel dead in the hands, they have no "whip" I can swing a 32oz hickory easier then I can a 25oz Estwing.

I bet that thing rings like the bells of hell also.
