    Great balance well hardened hammer I’ve tried a few different types of slate hammer this one is by far the best good things I like about the hammer are waffle round head hardened point for putting holes slates brass pomal at bottom of handle. Bad point hammer is 2-3oz light

    Great hammer. Weight and balance is spot on. The head is a fair bit bigger than my other hammer but I’m getting used to it. Leather stacked handle is smooth but not laquered- which gives the perfect amount of grip right out of the box. Made in Germany to boot.

    This is a great hammer. I’ve had and used it for years and really like the balance, weight and design. If I ever need another slate hammer I’ll definitely get another of these.
