Stiletto Trim Hammer Review.


Ok so I have the TBII and love it for framing. But when it comes time for trim and lighter work it's just to big. When I hit something with the tbII it going somewhere. So it is to much sometimes. So I was getting ready to but my son his first hammer. That's when I found it the 10oz trimm hammer that was it I had to get it for him RIGHT.


Right of the batt the head is I just the right size for trim. I bought the straight handle and it felt great in hand. Very good balance. This thing is light i didnt even know it was on my belt or even in my hand for thaat matter. it still could drive a 16 in with only a couple hits. So for a trim hammer that's great. I also tried it at some light carpenter building colums this is where you remember it's a trim hammer. I had to put a couple 6x6' in place well it was like hitting it with my razor knife bearly moved.

After I finly got the first one in I want and grad the tbII just to refresh and compare. Well the post went right in but I felt like I could really do some damage with this thing. dont get me wrong this thing does have some good weight to it when you need. but somtimes to much. that's why I was looking into a new trim hammer.

So as for a trim hammer it is perfict. I would give it a 9 out of 10!! It's that good. But at the end of the day it left me needing to go get the TBII. So I went home Burnt my son's name in it and gave him his first hammer.

So now I'm going to order the 12oz and see if maybe that is the sweet spot. Not to heavie for trim but enuff to nock that stubrin post in place. I'll ad some compare pic in the am

I have a Tibone, love it.

The Stiletto trim hammers seembto large for me. Havent tried one though. I use a leather handle Estwing for trim and any siding, cornice or whatever I dont want a waffle mark on. Im not switching heads when I need smooth. Siding and cornice I rarely need a hammer anyway.

Re: Stiletto Trim Hammer Review.


I have been running that finish hammer for about three years now. I love it. I use it for everything, but I bring out a 20 oz steel hammer for moving lumber around.
