On top of him stopping and looking at every hit, I don't know of one skilled carpenter that uses a claw hammer. The only thing I see on jobsites are rip claws. Except for plumbers and electricians of course. :whistling
Yep ripping hammer is what everyone uses. However my mom always had a claw hammer in her junk drawer. Lol

22oz curved claw short handled estwings are all most builders here in NZ, UK and Australia use, Id imagine a couple of them are skilled.

Even though I'm a carpenter my hammer technique has always been sloppy. I would be interested in a video by someone that knew what they were doing.
Best I could do after a few days of practice.
