    I’m not a fan of curved hammers . 95% of my hammers are straight . What you find easy to use . I think the curve is better for pulling nails .

    Always willing to learn .

    Straight all the way . I don`t even know why they made curved :-)I think curved are design for trimmers .

    Straight claw here too. I don’t think I even own a curved claw.

    I’ve got both, but prefer the curved claw to remove nails.

    The curved hammers have a much tighter V in the claw so you can pull finish nails much easier .

    This is true. I don’t swing a hammer daily like some on here, but prefer my 25+ year old ones when I need to pound a nail.

    I used to be curved only, but once I went straight, I have never looked back.

    There was a curved hammer around the house growing up. Thats the last time I saw one.

    When I pull nails I bend the nails sideways first then pull back. It pops right out.

    Brick hammer for me here. I rarely bring out the curved hammer. Someone stole my limited edition hickory one so I’m using this for now. Still haven’t gotten use to this junk.

    Rip claw or straight claw for me. When I see a curved claw hammer I think homeowner…hope that doesn’t offend anyone.

    Same here.

    Aren’t the curved claw hammers generally smaller/lighter hammers?
