This sounds silly to me to even ask, but I've just got to do it.

I've got a shiny brand new 21oz steel Stiletto sitting at the house and I'm wondering if it would be a sin to use it doing concrete form work.

I know it's just a hammer and all, but it's so nice looking :laughing:

I should just suck it up and break it in I guess.

It's a tool. Tools are there to be used and make their owners money. Bang that form, make that tool happy. A hammer won't sing leaning up against a wall.

Take a pic of it...to remember the good times; you know, before you started beating it's head against things :bangin:

I had a similar conundrum a few months ago when I showed up at a forming job with a brand spankin' new Douglas framer. The foreman asked me a couple of times if I wanted to borrow one of the spare hammers to work with that day:thumbup::laughing:

I'm sure there will be the usual gawking.

I'm actually just hoping the head stays on this one.

I like shiny tools but I also like a tool that's worn and done it's owner proud. That said I usually keep a "junk hammer" in the truck for unusual or potentially tool damaging work.
