    They are made by Martinez Tools, (the guy who made the Stiletto brand famous). He claims these are an upgrade over the Ti-bone. The steel head can take all the abuse you can throw at it, unlike the Ti-bone…which is apparently prone to breaking under certain situations.

    Nice hammers Jon. I have looked at the Martinez hammers a couple times thinking I would like to try one.

    Those are really great hammers; congrats, Jon. The Martinez story is really an interesting one. He rewrote the book on framing hammers all by himself.

    BE the change you want to see.

    Very nice Jon. I gotta get me a decent high quality hammer or two like those some day. I just don’t need to swing a hammer that often so they’re not high up on my list. One day.

    EDIT: I was looking them up. I notice they have choices of milled or smooth face. Looks like you went smooth, although it’s hard to tell for sure.

    I also noticed you can get straight or curved handles. I wonder what the benefit is of a curved handle in a hammer. What are your thoughts on that one Jon?

    Wow – nice, if I swung a hammer more I would seriously look into one.

    Was not too bad to put together.

    –EDIT– picture was too big, should work now haha

    What did you find that you didn’t like about the stand?? I found a few things?

    I still have check it out. I assembled it and that was about it.
    I might have some time over the weekend to test run it and fully check it.

    Did you find a place on the stand to clip the blade guard??

    I like to use the curved handle the most, easier on the wrist.

    Yes find it is easier on the elbow also, it seems to reduce tendinitis for me. Used to get it real bad but switching to the curved handle seemed to help a lot

    Now I want one. I can get some mild tennis elbow too, so obviously the curved handle would be for me. Now it’s whether to get a 12 or 15 oz though.

    Agreed. I prefer the feel of the curved handle. I think it slightly rotates the head of the hammer forward a bit also, which just feels more natural to me. Unlike the straight handle, it doesn’t feel like its going to slip out of my hand if I’m beating something into place.

    Did you get a special deal on them or pay the 225$ ea for them?

    Had to buy a couple of smaller drill bits yesterday. 1/16 and 3/32. While I was in that row I was looking for Bosch driver bits. I can’t find them individually. I would like another #2 Robertson, but I am not paying over $30 to get all the other bits in the kit that I will never use.

    That can be a pain when you only need a couple of bits. I got a set of assorted bits for Christmas. But I wanted that set mainly for in doing stuff around the house. Your probably right there is bits in there that won’t get used.

    They’re $330 CAD here, and hardly any retailers carry them. Atlas and Amazon is all I can find.

    No deals unfortunately…I paid $225 each for them. Plus shipping!
